Samuel de Champlain's Experience
Champlain had more than one string on his bow, or feather in his cap! In other words, he acquired a great deal of experience during his travels. As an explorer in the early 17th century, he had to continue, regardless of the situation. His life very often depended on it!
The spring of 1603 marked his first navigation towards New France, on the ship Bonne-Renommée.
