A fine story indeed! Each of the stories advances the reader's understanding, while keeping a suspense amid the enormous odds for success of the main characters. This entire series, though written for youngsters, is a really enjoyable read. Altsheler's series on the American Civil War is also fabulous. See all 6 reviews.

However, you wouldn't really expect there to be, given that it's a tale of the French and Indian War, set in the wilderness around New York State's Lake George, and ending in the battle of Ticonderoga.
The action all takes place within the space of about a week. This was one of the last books that Altsheler, a veteran of World War I, wrote, in , and you can tell that he saw the thick of battle from the descriptions of the Well, this is definitely a boy's book! This was one of the last books that Altsheler, a veteran of World War I, wrote, in , and you can tell that he saw the thick of battle from the descriptions of the battle at Ticonderoga. I felt like I was there! I loved his descriptions of the wilderness, and I liked the close friendship of the three main characters in the story.
Tayoga, the expert tracker, was an interesting character for his ability to hear so keenly what others couldn't. My favorite character, though, was a minor one--Elihu Strong, commander of the British forces, who provided some comic relief with his constant harping on how deficient the Government of Massachusetts was. While the book can stand alone, it is actually the fifth book in a series on the French and Indian War. Had I realized that, I would have endeavored to get the first book in the series, as I hate reading them out of order.
Throughout the book references were made to events that obviously happened in previous books, which was a bit disconcerting. Happily, these books are available online as free ebooks, as well as in inexpensive paperback, so I may buy the whole series. Highly recommended for those who like a good historical novel, war story, or adventure story, or who are interested in the early history of New York State.
Aug 07, Skip rated it really liked it. Superheroes of the wilderness This is thrilling adventure of 18th century scouts using their sensory skills to survive in the early American wilderness. I was captivated by their narrow escapes,due mostly to the super acute hearing of the Native American.
The Lords of the Wild- A Story of the Old New York Border
And I enjoyed the writing style of the author,thus a 4 star rating. You will enjoy the adventure, as young Robert Lennox, along with his Onondaga friend Tayoga, and hunter David Willett, try to escape capture by the French and their Indian allies, making their way south along Lake George in the wilds of New York State to warn the British forces of impending attack.

A switch to a historical fiction was just what my tired brain needed. It reminded me of the love of American History that Jolly Ollie instilled in me. I find it amazing that so little of our history is even taught in schools today and of what is taught so little is factual. I really enjoy all of this author's books. All action packed and easy to read.
