148 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Pictorial endpapers, b&w illustrations. "As a child the author had often wondered whether there were ever French men-of-war on Lake Ontario, and his own sailing days turned up surprising ans wers. The French did have vessels on the Lakes the very first, and they did their part - and it was a very important part - in opening up this continent to the world. They had their storms and their battles, their triumphs and their tragedi e s . T h is book is an attempt to answer for others the questions the author had to answer for himself. Its theme is sail and sailors on the Great Lakes during the eighty-seven years of the French regime. It reveals the Great Lakes as the highwa y of c i vi li zation in the heroic days of the great explorers and traders, and shows specifically how La Salle proved the feasibility of deepwater navigation from the Atlantic to the heart of the continent, the present Seaway - and the surprisin g thi ngs w h ich fo llowed this great human discovery." Small bump at bottom corner of boards - migrates slightly into adjacent pages, minor wrinkling at bottom of hinges. Dust jacket has light edge wear, very small chips/tears at top/bottom of s pine and fl ap -fol ds, two small water stains on inside of spine, minor soiling. Very Good/Very Good-
