Samuel de Champlain has long been known as the founder of Quebec and as a tireless explorer. No one knows for sure where he was born or who he really was. Still, his career was packed with interesting details and his early life prepared him for greatness.

Without Champlains own detailed records, the years 1600 to 1640 in Canada would be almost a mystery. Possibly Canadas first multicultural advocate, he dreamed of creating a new people from French and Aboriginal roots. However, his efforts to establish a colony encountered setbacks in France. Among his detractors was the powerful Cardinal Richelieu. Champlain was not of the nobility and thus was considered unfit for patronage.

The explorers story is an exciting one, as he explored new territory, established alliances and understandings with Natives, waged war when necessary, and left behind a legend in the New World that lasts to this day.

From the Inside Flap:

Samuel de Champlain has long been known as the founder of Quebec and as a tireless explorer. His efforts to establish a colony encountered setbacks in France, and since he was not of the nobility, he was therefore unfit for patronage. Without Champlain's detailed records, the years 1600 to 1640 in Canada would almost be a blank slate.
