River of Forgotten Days: A Journey Down the Mississippi in Search of La Salle
Daniel Spurr (au). In 1682, the French explorer Robert de La Salle became the first European to journey from the Great Lakes down the Illinois & Mississippi rivers to the Gulf of Mexico. There at the delta, he claimed for France the vast heartland of America. Long fascinated by the enigmatic La Salle, Daniel Spurr set off to trace La Salle’s route. From the upper Midwest they head downriver to New Orleans & beyond. A journey of remembrance & awakening, a juxtaposition of the nation that has grown up along the banks of the Mississippi & the untamed wilderness of La Salle’s time -- a “pre-America” that is revealed by the journals of La Salle & his contemporaries. Illustrations.
