David Hackett Fischer writes of Samuel de Champlain, who founded French Quebec four hundred years ago, that “[Champlain] wrote thousands of pages about what he did, but only a few words about who he was.” It is well for our own and future generations that Fischer, in his Champlain’s Dream, has now splendidly written about both the admirable man and his remarkable deeds.
