The last French and Indian war : an inquiry into a safe-conduct issued in 1760 that acquired the value of a treaty in 1990 by Denis Vaugeois( )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1760, ten months after the fall of Quebec City, British forces under the command of General Amherst were converging on Montreal, which would capitulate to the British by early September. Somehow Amherst had managed to break the complex network of French-Native alliances on which New France relied.Vaugeois sets the context by reviewing the important events of the Seven Years War and then examines the train of events between the fall of Quebec and that of Montreal in detail
Champlain : the birth of French America by Raymonde Litalien( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel de Champlain is one of Canada's most significant historical figures. Both tenacious and knowledgeable, he sustained the fledgling settlement at Quebec, orchestrated alliances with Aboriginal groups, explored and mapped much of Atlantic Canada and the St. Lawrence Valley, and struggled to gain support for New France." "In Champlain: The Birth of French America historians, ethnologists, archaeologists, archivists, and researchers from France, Italy, and Canada revisit Champlain's enormous contributions and unique role in history, offering new insights and raising new questions about the "father of New France." Illustrated, including the thirty-two maps attributed to Champlain as well as documents, a selection of his drawings, and illustrations of rare artifacts, Champlain is a source of information for anyone who wants to understand New France and the origins of Canada."--Jacket
Mapping a continent : historical atlas of North America, 1492-1814 by R Litalien( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1493, Christopher Columbus returned from a long voyage to the west, convinced he had reached India. In truth, an immense continent, then absent from any map, had blocked his path. A formidable barrier separating Europe from Asia, North America became a coveted land, attracting sailors, missionaries, trappers, soldiers and scientists. For three centuries, motivated by the goal of finding a nautical route to the Pacific Ocean and from there the Orient, European explorers surveyed and mapped the large territory, exploring every body of water, from the tiniest bays to the greatest rivers, and pushing deeper into the interior. Three hundred years almost to the day after Columbus's first voyage, Alexander Mackenzie reached the Pacific Ocean "from Canada, by land, 22 July 1793." In 1805, spurred on by Jefferson, the Lewis and Clark expedition crossed the continent from the Missouri-Mississippi delta to where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean. The continent's measure had been taken. - Publisher

In March 1493, Christopher Columbus returned from a long voyage to the west, convinced he had reached India. In truth, an immense continent, then absent from any map, had blocked his path. A formidable barrier separating Europe from Asia, North America became a coveted land, attracting sailors, missionaries, trappers, soldiers and scientists. Seeking not only the Vermilion Sea but also fish, beavers, and precious metals, they crossed rivers and trekked through portages, forests, and mountains. With the help of "Indians" they unlocked the secrets of this terra incognita. Art, scientific papers, and maps provide essential witness to this quest for knowledge that allowed Columbus, Auchagac, Champlain, Franquelin, Thomspon, Mackenzie, and Lewis and Clark to take the measure of America.For three centuries, motivated by the goal of finding a nautical route to the Pacific Ocean and from there the Orient, European explorers surveyed and mapped the large territory, exploring every body of water, from the tiniest bays to the greatest rivers, and pushing deeper into the interior. Three hundred years almost to the day after Columbus's first voyage, Alexander Mackenzie reached the Pacific Ocean "from Canada, by land, 22 July 1793."

À l'origine de l'actuelle Loi sur les Indiens et de la création des réserves, il y a eu, entre 1828 et 1858, trois importantes commissions d'enquête. Ces trois rapports offrent d'étonnants moments de vérité. La réalité indienne au lendemain des guerres de 1754-1760, de 1775-1783 et de 1812-1814 est peu connue. Les ravages des guerres et surtout des épidémies, l'ampleur du métissage, le désarroi des Indiens sont autant d'aspects que présentent, avec franchise et réalisme, Darling, Bagot et Pennefather. Leurs rapports sont d'une bouleversante actualité
