Publication Date:




The Invasion, originally published in 1932, marked the debut of historical novelist Janet Lewis, who went on to write numerous poems and short stories as well as the novels The Wife of Martin Guerre and The Trial of Soren Qvist. Lewis grew up in the Lake country of the Old Northwest and The Invasion is based on family stories told to her as a child. The Invasion displays well-researched historical accuracy, an innate understanding of and felling for Native American culture enhanced by the author's fluency in the Ojibway language, and an economy of style that is remarkable for a first novel.
