Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America

This video clip offers a preview of the award-winning animated documentary available for purchase from the PBS store. Samuel de Champlain is known as the “Father of French America,” the founder of Québec, a brave explorer, expert cartographer and a visionary who worked tirelessly to create a self-sustaining European settlement in North America.

Dead Reckoning ~ Champlain in America tells the story of Champlain and the people who taught him how to explore and survive in the wilds of North America.  Like the French explorer, Mountain Lake PBS is charting new territory in producing the first historically accurate, animated documentary on Samuel de Champlain to be broadcast in the United States and Canada.
