Description


Short-listedfor the 2005 Ottawa Book Award for Non-fiction

Soldier, sailor, adventurer, and philosopher, Louis-Antoine de Bougainville was a talented French officer whose remarkable career took him from the boudoirs of Paris to the flintlock battlefields of North America and on to the luch islands of the South Pacific. In this lively biography, author Victor Suthren follows Bougainville's career in North America during the Seven Years War and the American Revolution and his adventures in the South Seas. Written with a historian's eye for detail, The Sea Has No End is a fascinating portrait of the most stirring and dramatic events of the eighteenth century.
