Notes The first French edition, based on the third English edition, considered the best textually. Text in French. With the important map of the areas West of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior showing the area of the headwaters of the Mississippi, extending North well into Canada and West as far as the Dakotas. Carver went farther West than any explorer of the Northwest before the Revolution, and although he failed in his aim to find the mythical Northwest Passage, he added considerably to geographical knowledge of the area.
