The River that Didn't Lead to China
|Caption||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).|
