Jacques Cartier and the Exploration of Canada

In 1535 the bold sea captain Cartier (born in 1491) became the first European to sail into the St. Lawrence River, a mighty waterway that goes deep into Canada. He dreamed of finding the fabled Northwest Passage, a hoped-for route to the spice rich East Indies.

Read of his encounters with Native Americans and surviving several miserable winters in the wilderness.

Unlike many European explorers, he survived his journeys and retired to France, dying in 1557, one of his country's most respected sailors and explorers.
