Histoire de la Nouvelle France...

Paris: Jean Milot, 1609.

Marc Lescarbot was a French lawyer who accompanied his client, Jean de Biencourt, Seigneur de Poutrincourt, to what is now Nova Scotia. He returned a year later and published several accounts of "New France." Lescarbot espoused a positive view of native life, using the natives as foils for a critique of French society.
