Father Louis Hennepin and the La Salle expedition to the Upper Mississippi have been recorded in our history books, but in Spirit Lake, we see the expedition from the view of those who lived it: the intrepid French-Canadian voyageurs. Risking their lives to explore the Upper Mississippi, these men sought fame and glory, but found treasures much greater--a newfound respect for the land and its native people, and even love. Lake Mille Lacs, known at the time as Spirit Lake, is the beautiful setting of this novel, which will enchant readers young and old alike.
