A description of Louisiana by Louis Hennepin( Book )

38 editions published between 1880 and 1975 in English and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Description of Louisiana, written by the Recollect friar, Father Louis Hennepin, is one of the principal sources of information about the explorations of the Sieur de La Salle in the area of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River Valley, 1678-1680. Despite allowances which must be made for the vanity of the author and for his distortions of the truth, his account nevertheless possesses great value. Publication of the Description of Louisiana in France in 1683 made the author a celebrity and also helped popularize the exploits of La Salle"--Foreward
