About the Author:

JAMES DE MILLE was born in Saint John, NB, in 1833, and educated at Acadia College, Wolfville, NS, and Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. He taught classics at Acadia College, and rhetoric and history at Dalhousie College in Halifax. He had a successful career as a prolific and popular novelist. He died in 1880, and his best known novel, "A Stange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder," was first published posthumously in 1888.

Review:

"De Mille writes in succinct and easy sentences, free of adjectives and drawn-out syntactic pretenses. His pen even allows cliches to sound moving . . ."- Aidan Johnson, The Hamilton Spectator
