Parkman conceived the project in 1841, when he was a Harvard sophomore, and persisted in it despite chronic nervous disorders that affected his eyes. The last volume of what he called his "history of the American forest" appeared almost thirty years after the first. Deservedly compared, as a literary achievement, to Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Parkman's accomplishment is hardly less awesome than the explorations and adventures he so vividly describes. His own indomitable spirit is reflected in two of the history's most fiercely resolute figures: La Salle, obsessed with colonizing the Mississippi Valley, and Frontenac, determined to bolster France's tottering position in the New World. Now for the first time Parkman's complete epic appears in a compact form. It tells a story of great empires maneuvering in an unfamiliar and hostile terrain with all the guile, sophistication, and ingenuity learned from centuries of European rivalry. Count Frontenac and New France under Louis XIV tells how France might have won her imperial struggle with England. Frontenac, a courtier made governor of New France by that most sagacious of monarchs, oversaw the colony's brightest era of growth and influence. Had Canada's later governors possessed his administrative skill and personal force, his sense of diplomacy and political talent, or his grasp of the uses of power in a modern world, the English colonies to the south might have become part of what Frontenac saw as a continental scheme of French dominion. England's American colonies flourished, while France, in both the Old World and the New, declined from its greatness of the late seventeenth century. Conflict over the developing western regions of North America erupted in a series of colonial wars. As narrated by Parkman in A Half~Century of Conflict, these American campaigns, while only part of a larger, global struggle, prepared the colonies for the American Revolution. In Montcalm and Wolfe Parkman describes the fatal confrontation of the two great French and English commanders whose climactic battle marked the end of French power in America. As the English colonies cooperated for their own defense, they began to realize their common interests, their relative strength, and their unique position; and in this imperial war of European powers we begin to see American figures~Benjamin Franklin, George Washington~soon to occupy a historical stage of their own. Parkman's chronicle, concluding on the Plains of Abraham after nearly two and a half centuries of conflict, will permanently transform our image of the American landscape. Written with verve, suppleness, and wit, this grand narrative history of political and theological conflict, of feat. Seller Inventory # 7171802

Book Description Library Of America, 1983. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1983. Library Of America. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN:0940450100. 1504 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This is the first of two volumes presenting all seven parts of Francis Parkman's monumental narrative history of the struggle for control of the American continent. Thirty years in the writing, Parkman's ‘history of the American forest’ is an accomplishment hardly less awesome than the adventures he describes. This volume begins with the tragic settlement of French Huguenots in Florida, then shifts north as explorers like Samuel de Champlain map the wilderness and wage savage forest warfare against the Iroquois; resolute Jesuits attempt to convert the Indians and suffer captivity, torture, and martyrdom in the wilderness; conflict rages in French Canada between religious extremists and fur traders. Dominating all is the fiercely indomitable La Salle, whose obsession with colonizing the Mississippi Valley leads to vast treks across the western prairie and assassination in a lonely Texas swamp. inventory #6016.
