Pierre Esprit Radisson Who? Pierre Esprit Radisson was an explorer of New France. He was born around 1640 in France and died in 1710. Although he is well known, there is not a lot of information on this famous explorer's early life. Why did he come to New France? Radisson was actually attending the wedding of his half-sister, Marguerite Hayet, who lived in New France. Later her husband died and she remarried a man named Médard Chouart Des Groseilliers, who was also a famous explorer. Did he meet the First Nations? One day while he was out duck hunting, Radisson was captured by the Iriquois. He gained their trust an respect and then lived and hunted with the Iriquois for 2 years, until he escaped to Fort Orange and became a Dutch translator. After he returned home, in 1657 he took part in a unsuccessful Jesuit mission. After, he teamed up with his brother in law, Médard Chouart Des Groseilliers, and they traveled around Lake Superior for fine furs. When they got back though, they were fined and got their fur taken away because they did not have fur trading licenses. http://75.radio-canada.ca/portail/7s55n4FmAHtNkY5e5EOYQW1fI6BWNIlV/ The Adventures of Radisson Pierre Esprit Radisson wrote books about his journeys.
