France and England in North America by Francis Parkman( Book )

14 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

France and England in North America is a two-volume history of the European colonization of North America written by Francis Parkman between 1865 and 1892, which highlights the military struggles between France and Great Britain. It was well regarded at the time of publication, and continues to enjoy a reputation as a literary masterpiece. While it is still useful in a limited capacity as an historical study, Parkman took many liberties in describing unknown and unknowable details. This has led some critics to categorize Parkman's work as belonging in the purgatory between history and historical fiction. -- from https://en.wikipedia.org (Dec. 7, 2015)

Montcalm and Wolfe by Francis Parkman( Book )

133 editions published between 1884 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frames the war years through the lives of its two brilliant opposing generals. Weaving together the campaigns on both sides of the Atlantic, Parkman travels from opulent royal courts to muddy colonial fields, from Fort Necessity to the Plains of Abraham. He couples impeccable history with rich, insightful narration, revealing the war as a deeply personal conflict between Louis de Montcalm and James Wolfe, the two ambitious leaders who ultimately died heroes' deaths on the frontlines. Accompanied by over forty detailed maps and illustrations--some selected specially for this edition--Parkman's work shows how the enormous transfer of land from France to England at the war's end sowed the first seeds of colonialism--seeds that, in due course, led America to its revolution, and eventually, its independence.--Back cover

On April 9, 1682, Robert Cavalier, Sieur de la Salle, paddled into the Gulf of Mexico. He and a small band of men in three canoes had become the first to navigate the entire length of the Mississippi River--"the object of his day-dreams, the destined avenue of his ambition and his hopes." He claimed the river and its enormous watershed for France and named it after King Louis XIV. Five years later, while searching for an overland route to the Mississippi, La Salle was killed by mutinous members of his party. La Salle had spent nearly half of his 42 years in North America, enjoying some triumphs and enduring many hardships.--Amazon.com
La Salle and the discovery of the Great West by Francis Parkman( Book )

105 editions published between 1869 and 2003 in English and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René-Robert Cavelier de La Salle (1643-1687), one of the most legendary explorers of the New World, is best known for claiming the entire Louisiana Territory for France in 1682. Two years later, he was given the order to colonize and govern the great expanse of territory between Lake Michigan and the Gulf of Mexico. He set out from France with four ships but never reached his destination. Landing somewhere in East Texas, he and his men were ravaged by disease, weakened by hard labor, even gored by buffalo as they tried to locate the mouth of the Mississippi River, which was obscured by the sandy sameness of the Gulf coastline. In 1687, on a third attempt to locate the river by an overland route, La Salle was murdered by his own men in the desolate country between the Trinity and Brazos rivers. His body was never found

The battle for North America by Francis Parkman( Book )

11 editions published between 1948 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 13 volumes as France and England in North America in 1889, this classic work by the most famous American historian of this period has been skillfully edited by the distinguished historian John Tebbel into a single volume. While retaining the original focus, the graceful style and clear chronology, the Editor has eliminated the repetitive detail and archaic phrases. The result is a wonderfully readable edition of the definitive account of the struggle for the North American continent from the landing of the first French adventurer in 1534 to the Peace of Paris in 1763. The struggle for control of the continent was dominated by some brilliant commanders - Champlain, Jogues, La Salle, Frontenac, Washington, Howe, Wolfe and Montcalm - and eventually resulted in the ejection of the French from North America. As Parkman notes, 'On the American continent the war was ended, and the British colonists breathed for a space as they drifted unwittingly towards a deadlier strife.' For the British victory only served to sow the seeds of their own defeat in the American Revolution. -- from https://www.bookdepository.com (Dec. 7, 2015)
