Description

This is the French translation of Jean Pierre Roma and the Company of the East of Isle-Saint Jean.

In the 1700s, Jean Pierre Roma brought settlers to carve an international trading empire out of the virgin forests of Isle St. Jean -- now known as Prince Edward Island. A successful entrepreneur in a thriving community, he saw all his accomplishments destroyed by privateers in 1745. Yet the story of Roma lives on as an inspiration and a cautionary tale to leaders and builders. This new edition of a monograph originally published in 1977 ensures that Roma is not forgotten.
