not quite as advertised but not bad

La Nouvelle France: The Making of French Canada - A Cultural History - Peter N. Moogk

This is a bit dry, and it really does not go into the conflicts between English speaking and French speaking populations/views. What it does do, and does well, is provide an excellent background into how French Canada became French Canada. Moogk gives background to the society and types of people who travelled to New France. It can be a bit dry in places, but the book is split into different areas of life. You will learn quite a bit.
