TIn order to establish a dominant church in New France after Champlain's death, Jesuit missionaries were dispatched from France with the goal of creating a utopian Christian community. Each volume in this series chronicles the travels and explorations of those Jesuit missionaries through New France from 1610 to 1791. These documents are the sole written historical record of the early years of New France. The complete set is written in 73 volumes and includes the original French, Latin and Italian texts along with English translations and notes. Richly illustrated in black & white with portraits, maps and facsimiles, the documents bring us into the lives of the Ottowas, Lower Canadians and Iroquois from 1666-1668.
