In the four years he stayed there, Parkman developed his love of the forests, which .

Indeed, he would later summarize his books as "the history of the American forest. Parkman's accomplishments are all the more impressive in light of the fact that he suffered from a debilitating neurological illness, which plagued him his entire life, and which was never properly diagnosed. He was often unable to walk, and for long periods he was effectively blind, being unable to see but the slightest amount of light.

This Library of America volume, along with its companion, presents, for the first time in compact form, all seven titles of Francis Parkman’s monumental account of France and England’s imperial struggle for dominance on the North American continent. Deservedly compared as a literary achievement to Gibbon’s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Parkman’s accomplishment is hardly less awesome than the explorations and adventures he so vividly describes.Pioneers of France in the New World (1865) begins with the early and tragic settlement of the French Huguenots in Florida, then shifts to the northern reaches of the continent and follows the expeditions of Samuel de Champlain up the St. Lawrence River and into the Great Lakes as he mapped the wilderness, organized the fur trade, promoted Christianity among the natives, and waged a savage forest campaign against the Iroquois.The Jesuits in North America in the Seventeenth Century (1867) traces the zealous efforts of the Jesuits and other Roman Catholic orders to convert the Native American tribes of North America. La Salle and the Discovery of the Great West (1869) records that explorer’s voyages on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and his treks, often alone, across the vast western prairies and through the labyrinthine swamps of Louisiana. The Old Régime in Canada (1874) recounts the political struggles among the religious sects, colonial officials, feudal chiefs, royal ministers, and military commanders of Canada. Their bitter fights over the monopoly of the fur trade, the sale of brandy to the natives, the importation of wives from the orphanages and poorhouses of France, and the bizarre fanaticism of religious extremists and their “incessant supernaturalism” animate this pioneering social history of early Canada. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation’s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America’s best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

This is a book that was written in the late 19th century.And so it reflects the prejudices of that era.
If you are a snowflake you will not read far.
But Parkman has tremendous insights into the mentality of the Jesuit order and the religiosity of the settlers of Quebec.
As the premiere horticulturalist of that era ,
Parkman's descriptions of the flora of these territories is masterful and lyrical.
Be prepared to be enraptured by a great prose stylist- the American Gibbon both in quantity and quality of work product.
Throw her heart
This new edition of Francis Parkman's early American history is a first rate republication by "The Library of America" and what a book! Parkman writes history like he was there when the events took place . You can see the Indians war paint and hear the great orator Pontiac as he stirs the tribes to follow him . Watch as the The British army learns hard lessons in the American wilderness . Join the pioneers as they begin to spill across the Appalachian mountains . Parkman walked many of the trails he describes and much of his details come from the experience of an eyewitness. His books are heavily footnoted with not just the source , but quotes verbatim letters and dairies in support of his writing . His histories are written in the style of a great epics of old . This book goes to the passions of the participants , both sides . To be sure he writes from the view point of a Proud American but that doesn't mean he ignores the other sides view point and thankfully these were written before political correctness became to dominate view point . I have read no modern history better written or more in depth as to its subject. I recommend all his histories . This one in particular as it covers a little published time in American history .

Readers have written outstanding reviews of Parkman's great work. I wish to mention a couple of interesting points the other readers haven't.
Parkman explains the failure of France to succeed in dominating North America, and why the English succeeded. He attributes this to several causes. First, France produced genuine heroes in North America: both the well-known explorers such as Champlain and laSalle, and the amazing but lesser-known Jesuits. But the French efforts were sponsored and dominated by institutions: the French Court, with all its corruption, and the Catholic Church, especially the Jesuits. Their settlers, often selected from the lowest strata of society, were severely restricted in every regard. The English colonies, in contrast, were endeavors of the people of the colonies, who formed their own governments, and had great political and economic freedom. People actually WANTED to come to the English colonies. The English colonies enjoyed a spectacular organic growth, while French Canada was ultimately moribund. "There was no real motive for emigration. No persecution expelled the colonist from his home; for none but good Catholics were tolerated in New France. The settler could not trade with the Indians, except on condition of selling again to the Company at a fixed price. He might hunt, but he could not fish; and he was forced to beg or buy food for years before he could obtain it from that rude soil in sufficient quantities for the wants of his family." (p. 509)
Regarding the native Americans in eastern Canada and the New York / New England area, Parkman certainly does not limit himself to viewing them as savages. He does indeed dwell on their ferocity (well documented elsewhere), but he also portrays them as economically sophisticated. Moreover, he does not play down the Spanish "hounds of hell" who slaughtered their French captives, nor the "mutual outrages" perpetrated by the English and Spanish upon one another.
He attributes the ultimate inability of the Indians to compete with the European culture as the result of the Indians' democratic society, wherein no one had the right to order anyone else what to do. Their only government was "the intermittent one of councils." Consequently, any man in the tribes could begin a war, if he only could get together a few like-minded men, and anyone could walk away from a war begun by the advice of councils.
One more interesting, and for me enlightening point is Parkman's discussion of the tremendous weight the Indian women had in their society: they had women's councils who selected one of their number to represent them in the men's councils; and they were not ignored on important issues.
All in all, it may be a mistake to think Parkman lacking in penetrating understanding or sympathy for the French and the Indians.

In Francis Parkman's epic saga volume 1, emerges with the long journey of survival in the diverse cultural of differences as the frontier of what is today know as Canada and the early development of the United States with France, England, and Native Indians on North America. That prevails through settlements, the emerges of religion, and conflict.
Thank you for the on time delivery Amazon.

I read because of reading the book and film Black Robe which sourced from reports Catholic priests sent to France to their sponsoring Bishops. Also learned how the King of France populated Canada with young women to be the breeding stock for the Canadian soldiers and settlers. Parkman tells a great bit of history of north America.

I have been doing research on movements in Northeastern America prior to the Revolution. This book along with the Vol. 2 book have contributed greatly to this aim. This book came within the time required. It was in good condition as advertised.and I would buy from this dealer again.

Excellent reading!
Without a doubt one of the most intriging and engaging historical books I've ever read. The scope of his research and writing are awe inspiring. Its written in an older english style, but that also gives it a nice flavor. This book is a must read for any serious student of American history as well as those wanting a better understanding of the first explorers into the North American continent.
