The Allards Book Four: The Voyageur
Following the death of his father during the fall of Quebec in 1761, young Jacques Allard leaves his home forever to travel with the famous voyageur, Jean-Baptiste Charbonneau, through the outpost of Detroit to the great west in search of the elusive Northwest Passage. It is here he learns the true ways of the wild returning to Detroit to find progress disrupted by the Indian wars under the great chief, Pontiac.
Three years later, the peace is brief as the American Colonists speak of rebellion. Although the French-Canadians are mixed on their allegiance, many like Jacques are certain they dislike the British and travel east to aid the colonists in their quest for independence.
