Adventures of Chevalier de La Salle by John S. C. Abbott
La Salle was a French explorer who followed the path of the Mississippi river from the great lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. In doing so he overcame nearly insurmountable difficulties and faced down terror, privation, freezing cold, and savage natives. He passed thousands of miles of lakes and rivers in a birch canoe and transversed countless trails to claim the Mississippi valley for France.
