9781589635609: The Plains of Abraham

A beautiful tale of life on the Eastern American frontier of the mid 1700''s in the Adirondack and Lake Champlain regions of upper New York state. "The Plains of Abraham" is based partly on a true story taken from the Pennsylvania Register of 1765, which told of a number of white women and their children who were "rescued" by British forces and returned to frontier towns. Their Indian families cried for missing them so, and the sentiments were returned to such an extent by their former "captives" that many of those women and children sneaked off in the night to rejoin their Indian families.

About the Author:

James Oliver Curwood lived most of his life in Owosso, Michigan, where he was born on June 12, 1878. His first novel was "The Courage of Captain Plum" (1908) and he published one or two novels each year thereafter, until his death on August 13, 1927. Owosso residents honor his name to this day, and Curwood Castle (built in 1922) is the town's main tourist attraction. During the 1920s Curwood became one of America's best selling and most highly paid authors. This was the decade of his lasting classics "The Valley of Silent Men" (1920) and "The Flaming Forest" (1921). He and his wife Ethel were outdoors fanatics and active conservationists. Curwood himself was descended from a great-grandmother who was Mohawk.
