  1. Bob Laclede Bob Laclede says:

    Excellent account of the founding of St Louis and my favorite book on Pierre Laclede


  2. Becky F. Becky F. says:

    This book was about Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau The period of time covered in this book is uite short being that its focus is on the founding of St Louis and the city's first few years It was somewhat academic but I found it to be an interesting read and I learned uite a bit about the LacledeChauteau family and early St Louis facts I read Founding St Louis this year in honor of the 250th anniversary of the founding of St Louis I have lived in St Louis almost my whole life but I definitely learned things that I didn't know before and I now have a greater appreciation for the history of my favorite cityI would recommend this book for someone that wants to know about the men and families that founded St Louis for someone interested in the French colonial era of history or for someone interested in another perspective of life in America during the Revolutionary War era and the years that followed


  3. James Spurgeon James Spurgeon says:

    In his last government report Chouteau reminded American officials of the invaluable principle that had made the 'spirit of St Louis' so special Finding success on a distant frontier of many cultures he wrote reuires 'a complete knowledge' of different 'customs characters habits and way of living without which one will always err and fall from errors to errors' pg 198This book is absolutely amazing For anyone that lives in St Louis this is a must read It has taught me so much about the founding of the city that I call home which so much has been lost to modern times What shaped us and how did we get to this point? Even today we can still learn many lessons from Auguste Chouteau and the early years of our city

    In the interest of full disclosure Professor Faust taught my Senior Seminar class in History at UM St Louis and I liked him a great deal So I'm not an entirely unbiased reader Dr Faust examines the often neglected period of St Louis history that took place before the Louisiana Purchase when the region was still under French influence He highlights the symbiotic relationship the French had with the local Native tribes which allowed what could have been an insignificant trading post to grow into the thriving metropolis it eventually became A good read for anyone interested in St Louis or Early American history
