Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up-- For a fellow in the exploration business only a couple of decades, La Salle had as much--or more--trouble than makes the six o'clock news. But his accomplishments were enormous. He set up forts, explored rivers, and was the first European to go all the way down the Mississippi; he added to the possessions of the King of France, Louis XIV, all the territory later to be added to the United States as the Louisiana Purchase. Hargrove's is an interesting expository account that certainly could be useful for reports as well as for general information, although the vocabulary and allusions will deter some readers, and many of the Native Americans are depicted as stereotypically treacherous. The book is heavily illustrated with old prints, maps, and full-color photographs. As with a few dated black-and-white films, some prints have been "colorized." Most pages are topped by a half-inch of smoggy, gray haze, a touch that is more annoying than artistic. --George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
