Anything could happen. Louis Hebert went ahead to the new world to see what it was all about and in hopes of bringing his family there to settle. His wife Marie, however, was not to be undone for though she was safe in Paris in the beginning of it all; she was acquiring skills of her own to survive and prepare for making their dreams a reality. She learned the skills necessary to survive in the rough and open terrain of New France with no possibility of help. Marie was raised as the daughter of a wealthy merchant and her husband was a successful apothecary-would she learn those new skills required for a family to survive alone so far from any aid?
Then, what about actually getting there? It was so far away and almost inaccessible. Follow Louis Hebert as he learned to navigate the politics of the era. France was more than eager to jump aboard to settle in the New World, yet they had plans of their own. They wanted all they could gain in profits from there and the fur trade was just showing its promise.
King Henry IV was more than willing to have his people settle in the infinite terrain overseas, yet not too thrilled about funding them. He had his eye on the profit and thus the fur monopolies were started. Once they were underway, the wars began for full control over territory in the New World. Then there was the land battle Enter Samuel Champlain, a young navigator and cartographer who inquisitively had his eyes on finding a route to the Orient where he could see in his dreams of wealth and riches - cities populated by the French along the way. Yet, the land drew him and roped him in.
Trip after trip from France to Arcadie-the land he sought to claim for France, the land found his heart warming even more with each trip he made.

Will he find his trade route? Well, history tells us that answer of course. In addition, there was Jean Poutrincourt, a nobleman from a daunting lineage. This was a man who saw hope and glory. He was the younger son and had luckily inherited his fair share of his family's estate, yet it was not enough. He wanted more. He saw in his dreams at night a huge Chateau on rolling hills and his descendants growing fat off the food of the land. He spent every penny he owned and from his wife's dowry in doing all he could with each cell of his aging body to make his dreams come true.
With his wit and charm, it almost seemed possible, yet; again, there was the politics of the era. Road block after roadblock and with the will of all-somehow they managed to take that first terrifying step in a land so very far away from all they had even known. Such bravery and determination is noted well by the author in this epic tale of such remarkable and profound people.

Sort order. I really wanted to like this book. It seemed well researched genealogical research of a descendant and covered a period I had not read about before. But, I just couldn't get beyond the errors. I felt that the book was originally written in another language likely French but was either translated by some Internet translation engine or scanned using OCR software. The errors would have passed a spell checker but the wrong word used and structure terribly awkward and sometimes downright wrong I really wanted to like this book.
The errors would have passed a spell checker but the wrong word used and structure terribly awkward and sometimes downright wrong just made the reading painful but I did stick it out to the end. Perhaps the Kindle version I read has been rehabilitated. I hope so. View all 3 comments. Nov 25, Bryant Fielding rated it it was amazing. Well written.
Looking forward to the next novel.
The time period is one not often written of. The adventures were amazing and well researched. Definate page turner! Jul 03, Roger Brooks rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book, a great read for History buffs. This author has done a good deal of research in early American History.
A must read for someone of French Canadian descent. Waiting for book two I love historical novels. This book is a great blend of history and presumably some fiction to fill in the gaps. A great read for those interested in anthropology of the early settlers in the Americas. The only niggle is that the book needs another proofread but as it's a translation I haven't marked it down.
Jun 23, Caroline rated it did not like it. I tried to read this book, by borrowing it via Amazon Prime. I honestly couldn't get past the prologue and the first two pages of the first chapter. I wanted so badly to like it because I have ancestry in French Canada. But it desperately needs a good copyeditor grammar, punctuation, and syntax are weak, not to mention repetition of words in consecutive sentences , and the historical part in the prologue was chronologically confused in narration as well as not something that rings true as writt I tried to read this book, by borrowing it via Amazon Prime.
But it desperately needs a good copyeditor grammar, punctuation, and syntax are weak, not to mention repetition of words in consecutive sentences , and the historical part in the prologue was chronologically confused in narration as well as not something that rings true as written by the character in question; having just read a biography of Mary Queen of Scots, who was married to the son of Catherine de Medicis, I was fresh from some of those details and this made hash of them. I gave the author two stars for her research, which is probably quite good, but I just can't read the book Crispy rated it did not like it Sep 20, Aravon Forrest rated it it was amazing Nov 29, Lucille Hemphill rated it it was amazing Dec 10, Roger rated it it was amazing Oct 09, Beth rated it really liked it Dec 14, Vivek rated it it was amazing Feb 15, Jane rated it did not like it May 01, Kirstein rated it it was amazing Aug 11, Kathleen Mcconville rated it it was amazing Jan 20, Stanley Whitmoure rated it it was amazing Nov 24, Ray Deonier rated it liked it Jun 17, Can they come to terms with their family history?
