TORN FROM THE ARMS of his IsAbel la Ardeur (IsAbel the Passionate), 16-year-old atienne BrAlA(c), an indentured servant to Samuel de Champlain, was thrust into a vast wildwood where he was cursed by his RA(c)collet and Jesuit adversaries as ale bAate noire (a blackheart), much addicted to women.a BrAlA(c) was the first European to explore the interiors of Ontario, New York, upper Michigan, Pennsylvania and Maryland a and provide oral descriptions of AmA(c)rindiens living in those wondrous places. Because he was unschooled and only semi-literate, it is likely his explorations covered a much wider area than can now be documented. He wrote nothing, but his verbal recitals were taken down from his lips by Samuel de Champlain, the father of New France; Jean de Brebeuf, a Jesuit priest; Joseph le Caron, a RA(c)collet priest; Gabriel Sagard, a missionary-friar and BrAlA(c)as well-educated friend Nicholas Marsolet, the little king of Tadoussac. The exploits of BrAlA(c)-the-brave, also known as Brave Wolf, the first white man to set eyes on Niagara Falls and four of the five Great Lakes, are interwoven into a rich tapestry of oral histories of North Americaas eastern woodland tribes.
