Lured by tales of the Canadian wilds he had heard in Parisian cafes, Henry de Puyjalon crossed the sea in 1872. Passionate about nature, he began making long northern expeditions into the Mingan Archipelago - a necklace of limestone islands and reefs. De Puyjalon was commissioned by the provincial government to make mineralogical surveys, and was later hired as the Perroquet Island lighthouse keeper. There de Puyjalon raised a family and found the peace and purpose he had been looking for - environmentalism. In French: Henry de Puyjalon: Solitaire de la Côté-Nord
