Grade 4-6–A revised and expanded version of the author'sSamuel de Champlain (Grolier, 1986; o.p.), this lushly pictorial biography, extended with archival artwork, maps, and artifacts, boasts additional illustrations in muted colored pencil. Eight brief, four- to eight-page chapters written in an engaging, lively prose cover Champlain's early years in France and his experiences in Canada from 1603 until his death in 1635. Frequent sidebars add information without disrupting the flow of the text. Back matter includes mysteries about Champlain's life and describes historic sites and monuments. Libraries that own the earlier title will want to update with this handsomely laid out book, while those that have more standard biographies, such as William J. Jacobs's Champlain: A Life of Courage (Watts, 1994;...

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-These bare-bones titles average 11 short paragraphs of text with a generally clear color photo of a site or historical map, or a reproduction, on each spread. There is not as much text as in some encyclopedia entries, and the language and sentence structure are extremely simple. It is unlikely that the audience to whom the format and text might appeal will have the requisite historical background for or interest in these books, and some of Kline's comments may confuse readers. For example, in Lewis, the author writes that, "In 1803 very few people lived west of the Mississippi River." Yet a few pages later, she states that on their travels West, Lewis and Clark "met many tribes of Native Americans." These volumes may be useful in schools where there is high local interest in the...

Book Description
During these altercations, it was impossible for me, as the time of my departure was very near at hand, to do anything for the habitation at Quebec, for repairing and enlarging which I desired to take out some workmen. It was accordingly necessary to go out this year without any farther organization. The passports of Monseigneur le Prince were made out for four vessels, which were already in readiness for the voyage, viz. three from Rouen and one from La Rochelle, on condition that each should furnish four men for my assistance, not only in my discoveries but in war, as I desired to keep the promise which I had made to the Ochataiguins [29] in the year 1611, to assist them in their wars at the time of my next voyage.

Book Description
On the 27th, we went to visit the savages at St. Matthew's point, distant a league from Tadoussac, accompanied by the two savages whom Sieur du Pont Grave took to make a report of what they had seen in France, and of the friendly reception the king had given them. Having landed, we proceeded to the cabin of their grand Sagamore [137] named Anadabijou, whom we found with some eighty or a hundred of his companions celebrating a tabagie, that is a banquet. He received us very cordially, and according to the custom of his country, seating us near himself, with all the savages arranged in rows on both sides of the cabin.

Book Description
In the first place, there are at its entrance several islands distant ten or twelve leagues from the main land, which are in latitude 44 deg., and 18 deg. 40' of the deflection of the magnetic needle. The Isle des Monts Deserts forms one of the extremities of the mouth, on the east; the other is low land, called by the savages Bedabedec, [95] to the west of the former, the two being distant from each other nine or ten leagues. Almost midway between these, out in the ocean, there is another island very high and conspicuous, which on this account I have named Isle Haute. [96] All around there is a vast number of varying extent and breadth, but the largest is that of the Monts Deserts.
