Louis Hennepin, c. 1640-c. 1706, Franciscan (Recollect) missionary and explorer, was born in Belgium and died in Holland. He went to Canada as a missionary in 1675. He accompanied La Salle to the Illinois in 1679-80, and was detached to ascend the Mississippi from Fort Crevecœur, during which expedition he was captured by the Sioux and rescued after some months by Du Lhut. He returned to France in 1681. This work contains an account of his trip to the Sioux, with a section on Indian customs, and is one of the earliest printed accounts of Louisiana.
