It wasn't necessary to write a whole chapter about winches.
When I started to read that chapter I honestly thought that I had lost my bookmark.

HASH(0xa6903e34) out of 5 stars Sometimes engaging, sometimes rather pompous Oct. 13 2014
By J. Zartman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Francis Parkman's book about the Oregon Trail and really enjoyed it, so I picked up this book. I hoped to find the same engaging style, and sometimes it shines through. Once he gets into a story he tells it well and transports his reader to Florida's jungles or Nova Scotia's rocky shores where you can practically smell death or feel the bracing sea spray. He waxes eloquent in his introductions and bridges between stories, however, and I found them to be so flowery and stuffed with grandiose verbiage that some were almost incomprehensible. They certainly lost the immediacy and gripping nature of his narratives. An example from Kindle location 917-918: "Day was breaking on the world. Light, hope, and freedom pierced with vitalizing ray the clouds and the miasma that hung so thick over the prostrate Middle Age, once noble and mighty, now a foul image of decay and death." Or, from location 2099: "...withered Feudalism, with her antique forms and tinselled follies, was again to seek a new home among the rocks and pine-trees of Nova Scotia." This particular book follows a number of exploratory ventures, all of which require an introduction or a bridge, so it often felt like slogging through the mud. Parkman researched his subjects carefully and thoroughly, so his books provide great historical references, but this one failed to provide me the same reading pleasure as his book on the Oregon Trail.

Written in non-american English - author also uses terms from 18th century English. - as a history and etymology buff my vocabulary has increased.

Great history of France in North America and written in a very readable style. I've read other Parkman works; this one is in the same ilk.
