Edward Herrmann's narration is superb, as usual. This is a very pleasant listen. Its quality is exceeded only by the enjoyability of the text itself.
The author brings Champlain's character, life and times in an illuminating and interesting manner. His relationships with native Americans were especially poignant.
This story of French colonization in North America fills in a few gaps that I've developed as a US citizen fed on a diet of typical American colonial histories. Upon completion of this book, it occurred to me that my Canadian friends have reason to be proud of their historical connection to this great man.
In my view, this book is a natural complement of Nathanial Philbrick's book - Mayflower.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book - and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys history or biographies.

This is an excellent listen. Wonderful narration of a refreshing look at a progressive architect of the Euro-Native civilization in the Champlain Valley of North America & Canada.
