    1 thought on “La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West (Modern Library Exploration)”

    1. Published in 1869, this is the third of Parkman’s seven volumes on the history of France in the New World. Most of the present volume follows the career of Rene-Robert Cavelier de la Salle (1643-1687), early explorer of the Ohio, the Illinois and the Mississippi. Secondary characters include La Salle’s stalwart lieutenant, the literally iron-fisted Henri de Tonty; and Fr Louis Hennepin, who spent time as a captive of the Sioux and went on to lie through his rather substantial nose about hims [...]

    2. Parkman's style of historical writing is vastly different from that to which we are accustomed today, making this book just a bit of an unusual read in places. Some of that is due to the spottiness of the historical record, but I think modern historians are better at the overall art of story-telling and connecting events. Parkman's organization of the history feels a bit disjointed and more connected to original resource materials than to explicating the time period. That said, I found the book [...]

    3. Really not too sure how to rate. Found the archaic language to be fun and challenging. Best to get a map of the eastern Mississippi watershed to follow some of his journeys. Blind ambition, exploitation and greed. Does not end well for La Salle.
