Hunting for the Mississippi

Camille Bouchard; Peter McCambridge, trans.

Baraka Books, Ages 12+

When 12-year-old Eustache Bréman, the unworldly and wide-eyed narrator of Camille Bouchard’s Hunting for the Mississippi, boards a ship bound for Louisiana, he’s filled with hope. The year is 1684, and he’s been promised that the New World is one of abundance. Still grieving the death of his father and brother, Eustache is eager to leave behind his hardscrabble existence in France and begin a new life with his mother and the object of his affection, Marie-Élisabeth. But the book’s hopeful tone is short-lived, as Eustache and the others in the expedition’s fleet quickly realize that the New World is also home to unbearable tragedy and uncertainty.
