  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Working In his garden in Quebec, the explorer Samuel de Champlain quietly looks back over his life: the perilous Atlantic crossing, his dream to discover a Western route to China and his disappointment in only finding an inland lake. He remembers the pleasure of settling down in Quebec within the French colony despite the harshness of Canadian winters.
