The Old AmericanLarge Print - 2001
A mix of popular genres from top-selling American authors. Readers will relish themes of love, glamour, politics, perseverance, resilience, innovation and the pioneer spirit from some of the best-loved writers of modern fiction, nonfiction and biography.Set in New England and Canada during the French and Indian Wars, The Old American is driven by its vividly imagined title character, Caucus-Meteor. By turns shrewd and embittered, ambitious and despairing, he is the self- styled king of a motley village of Native American refugees in Canada. In need of money for his annual tribute to the French government, he has hired himself out as interpreter to a raiding party of French and Iroquois, and returns from New Hampshire in possession of captive Nathan Blake. As a powerful bond develops between the men, Blake comes to play an important role in the fate of the village.
