Europe's expansion into the New World during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries was a story of power alignment and cultural transmission as well as dramatic individual effort. Spain had her conquistadores, France her coureurs de bois, and England her sea dogs. Isolated from the authority of home governments, tempted by the abundance of gold, fur, and fish in the New World, these adventurers so vital to national policies of expansion developed their own personal creeds of conquest and colonization. Their individual exploits not only represent a humanistic theme essential in Europe's movement westward but heighten the analyses of cultural institutions of the era.

  • This was a truly interesting book since I'm very familiar with all the places in the book. Someone from outside the area might not find it as interesting as I, but if you're a history buff or a resident of southern Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, or the Florida panhandle, this book is an enjoyable trip back in time!

  • This is an AMAZING read!

  • There MUST be a photograph of Richbourg Gaillard McWilliams, my English professor. I am delighted to see that Tennant McWilliams, his son, is co-author and dean at U of Alabama at Birmingham. I was so interested in Iberville's accounts but had no idea that the McWilliamses did this great contribution to US and "southern" history.
