Description

The Jesuits in North America in the Seventeenth Century is the second volume in Francis Parkman's seven-volume history, France and England in North America, originally published in 1867.

It tells the story of the French Jesuit missionaries in Canada, then New France, starting from their arrival in 1632.

Francis Parkman has been hailed as one of America's first great historians and as a master of narrative history.

Numerous translations have spread the books around the world. The American writer and literary critic Edmund Wilson in his book "O Canada" (1965), described Parkman’s France and England in North America in these terms:

"The clarity, the momentum and the color of the first volumes of Parkman’s narrative are among the most brilliant achievements of the writing of history as an art."

Many modern historians have found much to praise in Parkman's work even while recognizing his limitations.

Historian Robert S. Allen has said that Parkman's history of France and England in North America "remains a rich mixture of history and literature which few contemporary scholars can hope to emulate".

Historian Michael N. McConnell has said:

“… Parkman's work represents a pioneering effort; in several ways he anticipated the kind of frontier history now taken for granted... Parkman's masterful and evocative use of language remains his most enduring and instructive legacy.”

Parkman’s brilliance lies in the fact that Parkman was no "arm chair" historian. His research was not limited to books and papers found in libraries from Boston to London and Paris. He personally visited nearly every town, battlefield, and waterway he wrote about.
