La Salle (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from La Salle The author makes little claim to originality in the following work, though the original sources of the history of the period have been carefully studied. Her aim has been, first and foremost, to give to younger readers what has hitherto been lacking - a short, yet not too short, account of La Salle's career, with details enough of contemporaneous history, scenery, manners, and customs to indicate the picturesque background against which La Salle's lonely figure moves in all the heroism of his magnificent journeys. If the work of La Salle's matchless biographer, Francis Parkman, has been too freely quoted, the excellence of the quotations must be their own excuse. The writer also acknowledges her grateful indebtedness to the Pierre Margry publication of documents relating to La Salle, the Caxton Club reprints, edited by Melville B.Anderson, John Finley's "The French in the Heart of America," John G. Spear's "The History of the Mississippi Valley," Mark Twain's "Life on the Mississippi," and many other authorities, whose works have been frequently consulted.
