9781926824543: The Adventures of Radisson: Hell Never Burns

In the spring of 1651, a 15-year-old Parisian, Pierre-Esprit Radisson, lands in Trois-Rivières on the St. Lawrence River. Within weeks, the course of his life changes dramatically when Iroquois braves capture him. Canoeing across rivers and lakes and portaging over mountains, Radisson’s captors take him to distant lands where they first torture him, then adopt him as a brother. In this first tome of the adventures of North America’s most famous coureur des bois—an independent entrepreneurial woodsman—Radisson recounts his journey throughout North America and his adoption by the Iroquois. This book, which explores a continent’s history in an era of bravery and heroism, is the stuff of legend.

Review:

"Provides lessons in history but is never didactic. Travels in the Iroquois world [are] absolutely enchanting."  —Jade Bérubé, author, La Presse



"It's lively and fun, and told as a very accessible tale, which has not been the case in history books for a long time."  —Canoe

"It will please people from 7 to 77."  —Archambault.ca

"This is a piece of literary work that brings story-telling to new heights. . . . A fantastic read about the unknown 'New World' that will captivate readers from start to finish." —www.JeanBookNerd.com

"Radisson lives among the (Iroquois) and is ultimately adopted into a family that he loves and fights with as a son and brother. The action here comes fast and hard, and the violence is sometimes shocking; torture was common, and when taking a village by storm no allowances were made for women and children. Hunting scenes are also thick with gore... Readers will wonder what happens next; thankfully, this is the first volume in a series, so we can see how Radisson matures." —Foreword Reviews (March 2013)

"A welcome addition to Canadian YA historical fiction. . . . This novel has the potential to convey some of the rich history of Iroquois culture and envelop readers in Radisson's adventures." —Resource Links (February 2013)
