I found Jacques Maxwell to be a very interesting person, but believe the story would be much more entertainig without so much of the French language involved. The story is entertaining, but trying to decipher it was a problem!

Going four stars was not a problem, as the book has so many different tangents it kept my attention most of the time! Too, Maxwell's escape from slavery, and his many successful accomplishments certainly kept me turning pars just to see what his next step might be, and what project he would attempt to achieve!
Great storylines throughout the entire story, and Mr. Legg's successful selection of characters played their assigned roles to perfection.
Maxwell definitely was befitting in all of his descriptive assignments throughout the entire series of unending adventures! He goes from a slave to wanderer; a Pirate to a fur trader, as well as a lover of Indian women!
I recommend this adventurous series of events to all readers, as You will enjoy Maxwell's exploits from beginning to end! This is a mixture of realistic adventures, and you need can tell what Maxwell's next entertaining accomplishment will entail! Try it. You just might enjoy his Tom foolery as much as I did!!😄
