The River that Didn't Lead to China

Active selection:
The River that Didn't Lead to China.  Jacques Cartier (inset) sailed up the St Lawrence in a vain attempt to find a route to Cathay - and instead earned himself the title of "Father of Canada".  Walking alone on the shore shortly before his departure for France, Cartier found the once-friendly Indians confronting him angrily.  They thought, correctly as it turned out, that Cartier was planning to abduct their chief.  Original artwork for illustrations on pp8-9 of Look and Learn issue no 865 (12 August 1978).
