Description What's Included
 
How many men forged our frontiers and are lost to history?

Packed with exploits in the forest and on the waterways of colonial America, this is the story of Henry de Tonti, French explorer and pioneer of the Mississippi river.

His story has been somewhat lost to history, sitting in the shadows of his friend and commandant, the explorer La Salle. But his accomplishments are just as noteworthy. He was instrumental in founding most notably St. Louis, Missouri, Little Rock, Arkansas and Mobile, Alabama.
