Description:

INGRAHAM, J[oseph] H[olt]. Scarlet Feather, or the Young Chief of the Abenaquies. A Romance of the wilderness of Maine. Original pictorial wrappers. Boston: F. Gleason, 1845. First edition. Wright I, 1344. BAL 9982. Very old waterstain, some light scattered foxing, else a very good copy. The fictional romantic "love-passage" of Natanis and Willewa, two star-crossed lovers from rival tribes, set in the wilderness of Maine against the backdrop of a pending British invasion during the American Revolution. Natanis's brother Sabatis, an Abenaki chief, has pledged his friendship to George Washington and the Continental army, though Natanis soon discovers that Sabatis, along with Willewa's father, plans to betry them. Loyal Natanis secures the conspirators' arrest and delivers the prisoners to Benedict Arnold, earning the admiration of the Continental forces and Willewa's hand in marriage. A note at the end of the narrative refers the reader to Jared Spark's Life of Arnold . for the "best" account of the American expedition. A lovely pastoral depiction of Maine, riddled with innuendo and intrigue. Bookseller Inventory #
