Or, The Winning of a Continent
Through misadventure the hero of the story, James Walsham, becomes involved in the historic struggle between Britain and France for supremacy on the North American continent. The issue of this war determined not only the destinies of North America, but to a large extent those of the mother countries themselves. With Wolfe in Canada will take the reader through many battles of this conflict. Meet a young George Washington and General Braddock as they fight the French and Indians, join up with Rogers’ Rangers, and learn of the legendary generals Wolfe and Montcalm. With Wolfe in Canada is a model of what a children’s book should be with its moving tale of military exploit and thrilling adventure. This classic provides a lesson in history instructively and graphically, whilst infusing into the dead facts of history new life. Mr. Henty’s classic With Wolfe in Canada is a useful aid to study as well as amusement.
