Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this addition to the Voices from Colonial America series, Worth presents the history of the vast French colony known as New France. Clearly written, the book is studded with quotes from people living in the colony and illustrated with colorful paintings, prints, and maps from a variety of periods. Sidebars spotlight topics such as the rights of women in New France and the hard lot of an Acadian family forcibly removed to Massachusetts. This nicely designed introduction to a historically significant area fills a gap in many colonial history series and library collections. Grades 6-9. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

"...the text provides a well-organized and quite readable account of the colony's history. Discussions of topics such as the "Starving Time" in Jamestown and the "Pocahontas saving John Smith" tale reflect current research and thought more closely than many comparable volumes on library shelves." —Booklist (Review of Virginia 1607–1776)

Format: Hardcover
Generic overview of Nouvelle France...not great if you're wanting a hardcore research book if you're want info on the founding families of French Canada.
