Quebec at the start

Helene's World: Helene Desportes of Seventeenth-Century Quebec - Susan McNelley

At times this is a little dry, however, it is a good detailed history of the early days of Quebec. It does somewhat focus on Helene Desportes, but the history does give great detail about how people and how Quebec struggled to survive during the early years. There is also information about the First Nations as well.
