This picture book biography on Sieur de La Salle is a fascinating look in Colonial American times and one mans determination to lead a life of purpose and excitement. Personally I think he should have kept his comfortable life as a merchant and his sizable inheritance, but that's just me. Joan Goodman did what all great authors do: inspire readers to read more. Can't wait to find out more information about this man and his unfulfilled quest.
