Born in a small fishing town in France, Jacques Cartier became an expert navigator and was chosen by King Francis I to lead an expedition in search of the elusive Northwest Passage. In this beautifully illustrated book, students will follow Cartier as he travels to Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and down the St. Lawrence River to the Iroquois village of Stadacona, which is now known as Quebec.
