9781598450989: La Salle: French Explorer of the Mississippi (Great Explorers of the World)

Ren-Robert Cavelier, known as Sieur de La Salle, was the first European explorer to traverse the entire Mississippi River to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico. Originally groomed for the priesthood in France, La Salle would journey through America on five separate expeditions. Author David Aretha describes how the explorer claimed the Louisiana territory for France in 1682 and met his end at the hands of his own men. Details about La Salle's legacy and the current dispute over raising the shipwreck of one of his ships are included."

From Booklist:

The Great Explorers of the World series presents the life stories and accomplishments of men who explored the world. Each book begins with a time line and concludes with a glossary, recommended reading lists of books and Web sites, and chapter notes identifying the many primary and secondary sources quoted in the text. The colorful illustrations include maps, photos of sites and documents, and artwork from many periods depicting people and events related to the explorations discussed. At times, the pictures appear too highly colored; the double-page spreads that open each chapter look particularly unnatural. In La Salle, Aretha gives a convincing portrayal of the explorer as a reserved, resilient, and determined man, while offering a readable account of his travels from France to Canada, down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan
