Trudel also contributed the thorough essay on Cartier that appears in the DCB I, pp. 165-172. The boom-town phenomenon became common across the state: The infrastructures of small farming communities near oil discoveries were inadequate to the demands of the population explosions. For the next decades, space travel was roaring like a rocket, fueled by man’s desire to explore, man’s desire for knowledge, and man’s desire to beat his enemies. Cartier's explorations show a close, if increasingly uneasy, relationship with the First Nations of the St Lawrence Valley.

"The Yellow River had become a vast sea, the limits of which were scarcely visible: houses and villages looked as though they were floating upon the waves.

He had found Van Diemen's Land and New Zealand, without sighting Australia. I cover those prehistoric boats in another section. To encourage construction of railroads, the legislature in 1854 granted lands to railroad companies; the amount of land was based on the miles of track that each company laid. A second voyage in 1493 and 1494, searching fruitlessly for the court of Kublai Khan, further explored the islands of “the Indies.” Doubts seem to have arisen among the would-be colonists as to the identity of the islands since Columbus demanded that all take an oath that Cuba was the southeast promontory of Asia—the Golden Chersonese.

After more than two years of legal battles, most East Texas operators accepted proration, the system of regulation still utilized. Europe was almost deforested, and was quick to import American wood. Pullen on the HMS Falcon (1855) and Cyclops (1856-57), with an extract from the Master Attendant and Conservator of the Port [Bombay] to the Commissioner of Salt and Opium (1860).
