Publisher Description:

Samuel de Champlain was one of the most colorful explorers of the 16th century. A master mariner, he had other occupations, too: spy, soldier, diplomat, writer, and artist. His explorations in the New World, though, made him famous for the ages. This detailed, easy-to-read biography gives readers a look at a man who served as the Geographer to the French king, an expert on Native Americans, a skilled mapmaker, the founder of Quebec City, and the father of New France.

The human spirit of discovery has always driven explorers to forge unchartered routes to distant territories. Before the discovery of the New World, explorers from Europe, Africa, and Asia brought the culture, politics, and customs of their homes to far-away lands. These actions encouraged trade, the spread of ideas and technology, and cultural interaction and exchange. This spirit of exploration continued with the European discovery and colonization of the Americas. The biographies in this series detail the lives and deeds of the most noteworthy explorers to cross the high seas or tread new routes across continents. Each title investigates their motivations, the often negative physical and cultural effects of exploration on native peoples, and, in turn, the influence of foreign cultures on society back home. ~Amber
