Summary Read First Chapter image missing

A guide to the important but half-forgotten chapters of New York State’s French history.

Raquette Lake, Ausable River, Lake Bonaparte—despite the number of French place names scattered across the state, New York’s rich and compelling French history has received less attention over the years than its English and Dutch heritage. Aiming to correct this imbalance, J’aime New York, 2nd Edition offers information on the French who have explored, settled, and visited New York State, revealing the unique characteristics of the French presence in each of the state’s seven major regions: Capital District, Lower Hudson, Metropolitan, North Country, Thousand Islands, Central, and Western.

Readers of this bilingual guide will discover that New York’s French connections link it to Europe, Canada, and even the Caribbean, and the French text will enable all students of French to check and increase their grasp of the language and vocabulary. Students and teachers will find that discovering the hidden aspects of local and regional history make learning much more meaningful, and this engagement with local history may inspire further research, since the final chapters of the French influence in New York have yet to be written.

Eloise A. Brière is Associate Professor of French and Francophone Studies at the University at Albany–SUNY. Her books include Rendez-Vous: La France et la Francophonie and Le roman camerounais et ses discours.
