The La Salle Expedition on the Mississippi River presents the
definitive English translation of Nicolas de La Salle's diary
account of Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle's 1682 discovery
expedition of the Mississippi River from Canada to the Gulf of
Mexico. This previously unknown manuscript copy was discovered
recently in the collection of rare books in the Texas State
Archives. It provides the most complete and authoritative account
available of this historic North American adventure and territorial
claim. By careful cross-document analysis, Foster projects an
extended expedition chronology that adds about two weeks to the
journey, corrects the date that La Salle's claim was announced, and
revises erroneous interpretations made by most contemporary French
and American Scholars. The work includes maps prepared by the noted
Southwest cartographer John V. Cotter.
