4 editions published between 1954 and 1969 in English and held by 225 libraries worldwide
LaSalle's first two ventures into the northern wilderness which is now Illinois in search of a route down the Mississippi River to France make up the major portion of this novel. The story revolves around the experiences of Laurent Delair, a young Frenchman who joins the first LaSalle expedition before it leaves Quebec, follows LaSalle and Tonty faithfully in two abortive attempts to reach the mouth of the Mississippi and accompanies them in their successful third trek. Opposition from the fur traders of the northwest, severe winter weather, hostile Indians, and discontent among his followers combine to delay LaSalle's success for several years. A fictionalized account of these years, The Wilderness Way is an adequate retelling of the LaSalle story, combined with excellent descriptions of the country and plenty of action to create a rousing novel of America during the late 1600s.--Book Review Digest, 1954, p. 12
