In the spring of 1651, a 15-year-old Parisian, Pierre-Esprit Radisson, lands in Trois-Rivieres on the St. Lawrence River. Within weeks, the course of his life changes dramatically when Iroquois braves capture him. Canoeing across rivers and lakes and portaging over mountains, Radisson's captors take him to distant lands where they first torture him, then adopt him as a brother. In this first tome of the adventures of North America's most famous coureur des bois-an independent entrepreneurial woodsman-Radisson recounts his journey throughout North America and his adoption by the Iroquois. This book, which explores a continent's history in an era of bravery and heroism, is the stuff of legend.
