The descriptions of clothing, food, wilderness, etc. Many things mentioned in this book, I believe, will spark interest to research Cartier, ocean voyages of his day, food, "sea monsters", etc.. I gave 4 stars was because of a long gaps of time, particularly the jump from and we suddenly learn about the deaths of Donnacona, his sons, and friends in France.
I thought maybe I had read too quickly but there was no mention of them going back to France with Cartier. I say this only because my daughter would question it. That being said, this would be a great read-a-loud book for a family, or just for anyone of any age to read for pure enjoyment with a nice dose of history.
Jacques Cartier’s First North American Voyage
What an interesting read! I had never heard of Cartier save some passing mention in a dull history textbook. I love how this style of writing brings him out as a real person in history. The fact that the author stays with information that is historically documented and shares at the end what was embellished for the sake of the story is something I greatly appreciate.
There are helpful links throughout the tex to various sources on the web which enhance the educational aspect of the book. I will be passing this along to my children and look forward to more in this series. Go to Amazon. Unlimited One-Day Delivery and more.

It was a cold winter even by Canadian standards. From mid-November until mid-April Cartier's ships were icebound.
