Frontenac, the courtier governor by W. J Eccles( Book )

39 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and French and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac (1622-1698), was a towering figure in North American history. Appointed in 1672 as governor general of New France, he was credited with intimidating the Iroquois, defying British colonial military might, and promoting France's imperial expansion to the west. W. J. Eccles masterfully debunks these myths, created in part by Francis Parkman, and reveals Frontenac as an anachronism who sought to maintain his privileged status through corruption, favors at court, and the illicit pursuit of commerce in the West. A deft analysis and reexamination of official administrative and military sources have made Frontenac the classic study of a complex and historically misrepresented governor
