This was a pretty easy read with a detailed account of La Salle and his contemporaries. I've read another book by Parkman that was very choppy, inconsistent, and annoying to read due to its constant grammatical errors. Because of that book, I was a little reticent to buy this one, but it turned out to be well worth it. It's difficult to find good and detailed accounts of early explorers because the historical evidence is lacking. Parkman does a great job with La Salle and I strongly suggest to anybody that's interested in this topic to purchase this book!

If you like American frontier history, you will find this book interesting. However, you will have to work for it because of the thousands of copy errors (due to electroning scanning, I guess). Inserted (incorrect ) letters, inserted capital letters, woerd spacing, inability to separate footnotes from the text, etc. all make this a challenge to read. OK, it was free, but you DO pay in terms of frustration. All that said, I read it all and it was worth it. Interesting look at the early French frontier in America.
