Summary
"In 1976, America's Bicentennial, twenty-four young men set out to re-create La Salle's voyage down the length of the Mississippi River, abandoning their modern identities in order to live like the voyageurs of the 1600s.... [This book] tells the story of this odyssey, whereby in taking on the roles of French explorers, a group of young men discovered America and themselves."--Front flap of jacket
