    1. This work is an incredible journey One forgets that he is reading From the very beginning of France in the New World until its demise, the traveler sees the evolution of a people and the discovery of breathtaking vistas and the sacrifices of our ancestors Our modern existence exhibits an ennui because we have become remote to our human natures Not so with the historical characters and unsung people who lived during these times An exceptional work by an unsurpassed historian that should put to sh [...]
