New France
 

Authored by Grace Morrison
Cover design or artwork by Elaine Morrison

New France is an excellent resource book comprising detailed pictorial diaries of six important  people of the time: Étienne Brûlé (explorer, interpreter), Gabriel Lalemant (Jesuit missionary), Marguerite Bourgeoys (educator), Jean-Baptiste Talon (intendant), Magdelaine de Verchères (heroine), Angélique Leblanc (Acadian). The book forms a microcosm of the era integrating History, Geography, French, Music and Art.

For the student there is much of interest and enlightenment. New France contains a wealth of coloured pictures of historical figures and artifacts, playable song manuscripts and documents of the time - a compilation of visual aids from across two continents that captures the look and feel of the era.

For the educator there are complete ready-to-go sets of activities, written, oral, and creative, based on each individual unit or theme. A bibliography and detailed index complete the work.
