A Relation of a Voyage’ is a 1698 book recounting the events of François Froger’s voyage around the world. In 1695, Froger and crew, under the leadership of Captain de Gennes, departed for the Strait of Magellan, making notable stops in Brazil and Caribbean islands. While they hoped to establish a French settlement near the Strait of Magellan, they ultimately encountered pirates and Indians, and discovered riches in the Americas! Froger also makes note of his interactions with slave traders, discovery of plants and animals, and even sea battles that he had to endure. A fascinating work of adventure!

 

According to Hill,

“This is an account of … an expedition to found a French settlement in the Strait of Magellan, proposed by French buccaneers who settled there. The project failed. This account of the expedition is especially noteworthy for details of natural history subjects and for the accuracy of Froger’s charts.
