I am among the very few french studying the role of the country in the early exploration of North America and thank American scholars for publishing such works.Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle did seem to have definitely vanished somewhere between historiography and somewhat more concrete Texas lagunas...The mere location of the ship was already a miracle and the job done afterwards another one...that might have deserved more precisions in the narrative as well as in the chronological approach of the facts.As it is , this book is nonetheless compulsory reading for all those fascinated by one of the strangest dreamers of all times.
