Descripción:

1968 First Edition Hardcover book in original dust Jacket . Very Good + book in Very Good + jacket . Jacket is price-clipped top corner, but small partial original price can still be seen . There was a faint tiny pencil mark inside top corners of two first pages, which has been carefully removed; light foxing top edge of pages, tiny bump part green cloth, and faint crease spine jacket. Still Nice & Clean. This is a handsome book; decorated boards in faux parchment with bright green cloth spine with gold gilding titles and decoration on spine, with matching parchment-like endpages, in matching parchment-like jacket with illustration on jacket of map of La Salle's exploration territory Lake Huron and Lake Erie; and small line illustration of French explorer's ship and group of explorers; cover by Paul Bacon. Book size: 5-3/4 x 8-1/2 x 1" thick; 282 pages with epilogue, bibliographic info, and index . Journalist & foreign correspondent John Upton Terrell, of California, was the author of a number of books on American history. In this book, he tells with realism the true story of the famed Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, who arrived in New France at the age of 22 to explore the North American wilderness and to make a fortune . He was robbed, poisoned, in disgrace, and shot at by Indian arrows, and he braved danger and disease while travelling through the uncharted wilderness . The natural beauty of a pristine American wilderness of forest, great plains, and immense rivers is beautifully described . The realities of life amongst the hostile Indians is also laid out in stark reality, including some of the barbarism that the early explorers encountered . The historical figures of Joliet, Frontenac, Colbert, and King Louis XIV figure in this narrative which moves back and forth from the sophisticated of the Palace of Versailles, the King's residence outside Paris, to the rough campsites on the Mississippi where La Salle and his men had to make camp . La Salle dreamed of establishing an Empire for the King of France in North America; the English and Spanish were obvious threats, but he also had to cope with his own government's mismanagement, and with the Jesuits, who had their own plans for the area. La Salle was intelligent, but also willful and overbearing, which led to his setbacks, and, ultimately, to his murder. He posessed courage, determination, and vision, and was one of the few men of his day who understood the importance of what would one day become the American Middle West . " La Salle - The Life and Times of an Explorer " . by John Upton Terrell . published by Weybright and Talley, New York 1968 Hard cover book in DJ . *** Securely packed for Safe Delivery since 1965 *** 5-3/4 x 8-1/2 x 1 ".
