Canada, in the footsteps of Jacques Cartier

By sail, in canoe, on horse and by dog-sled, the author left in the footsteps of Jacques Cartier who, under the order of Francois the First to discover the New World, departed France in 1534. In command of 2 ships and 60 men, this expedition, after landing in Newfoundland, continued their journey to the mainland of Canada and up the Saint Laurent River.

Laurent Granier and Philippe Lansac, photographers and travel-writers, traveled across Canada for one year, from east to west: from the Atlantic coast where Cartier´s first boats landed, on to the Pacific and the frontier of Alaska.

Québec, the Saint Laurent, the Great Lakes, the Prairies, Hudson Bay and the Rockies: this beautifully illustrated book takes the reader on a journey through these landscapes, marvellously photographed, that was traversed by the
French adventurers. In addition, it gives recognition to the first Europeans who explored these immense areas, and who gave rise to the French pioneer spirit...
