This is the fascinating story of the French regime in
Canada. Few periods in the history of North America can equal it for romance
and color, drama and suspense, great human courage and far-seeing aspiration.
Costain, who writes history in the terms of the people who lived it, wrote of
this book: “Almost from the first I found myself caught in the spell of these
courageous, colorful, cruel days. But whenever I found myself guilty of
overstressing the romantic side of the picture and forgetful of the more
prosaic life beneath, I tried to balance the scales more properly. [This] is…a
conscientious effort at a balanced picture of a period which was brave,
bizarre, fanatical, lyrical, lusty, and, in fact, rather completely unbalanced.” Download and start listening now!
