Born in Ath, Belgium, about 1640. Entered order of
Recollets. Sailed for Quebec, 1675. Stationed at Fort Frontenac, 1676.
Accompanied La Salle to the West, 1678. From Fort Crevecoeur (Peoria,
Ill.), in 1680, descended the Illinois and explored the upper waters of
the Mississippi. Captured by the Sioux and carried to their country.
After eight months, rescued by Du Lhut (q.v.), passed the winter at
Michilimackinac, and returned to Quebec, 1682. Apparently satisfied with
his adventures in the wilderness, returned to Europe, and settled in
Holland, where devoted himself to the preparation of a series of
narratives of his explorations, real and imaginary. Died there about
1706. =Bib.=: Works: Description de la Louisiane, etc.; Nouvelle
