The French and Indian War-the collision between Britain, its provincial troops and Indian allies against France and its own allies during the eighteenth century in America is fascinating to many students of the period. It gave rise to famous characters such as Robert Rogers of the Rangers who have found their way into literature and the cinema. Of course, the famous Hawkeye and the vel 'The Last of the Mohicans' which takes place within real historical events of the time has also become an American classic. Author Joseph Altsheler has taken this well loved subject for a series of vels of high adventure. In these six vels the chrology of the war, which of course includes many of its true life characters, is told through the adventures of its principal characters. Young Robert Lenx, the hunter Willet-also kwn as the Great Bear and his Indian companion Tayoga travel through intrigues, dangers, battles and many trials and setbacks as the story unfolds. Leonaur has brought the entire collection together in substantial three volumes. In this first volume are 'The Hunters of the Hills' & 'The Shadow of the North.'
