Edited by William C. Foster

What was life really life for the French adventurers who set foot on Texas soil in 1685? The explorations of Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle and his men had far-reaching consequences for the future of Texas, but the written records pertaining to them are scarce. The La Salle Expedition in Texas presents the diary of Henri Joutel, La Salle's post commander, who authored the most comprehensive account of the French explorers and settlers--their endeavors, their struggles, and their relations with Texas Indians. This new translation, edited and annotated by Texas historian William C. Foster, paints a complex portrait of the La Salle expedition, giving it its rightful place in history and contributing to a broader understanding of early Texas. Includes detailed maps.
