Irving Bachellor's Eben Holden is great historical fiction for all ages. It tells the engaging story of a young boy and his uncle as they struggle to survive,relying on common sense and good old Yankee ingenuity. Bachellor's creation of local color is particularly captivating for those of us who live in the North Country, but good reading for all. Just as those who read Mark Twain need not live in Mississippi to fully experience the greatness of his works, readers of Eben Holden need not live in or be familiar with Pierrepont, New York, and its environs to appreciate the values and suspense of his story. I am purchasing the book for Christmas presents for those relatives aged 10 to 78. It's a great story for all which will elicit good conversation-- a rarity in this day and age. Read it and share it; you'll be glad you did.

I only read this because Eben Holden was one of the first settlers of the area where I live, but I was very pleasantly surprised at the riveting tale of his trek across Vermont and upstate New York with his young orphaned nephew in tow. This book allowed me a peek inside the terribly arduous life of the early settlers, who needed a whole body of knowledge called "survival".

I thought I would be reading a dry telling of a bit of local history. But I was very pleasantly surprised at the writing, the feeling, the insight, and the details of how Eben Holden got along in snow storms and a multitude of disasters on his and his nephew's trek to NY from Vermont.

This was a favorite of my Mother's. I have her copy but it is very fragile and coming apart so I got this on my Kindle. I love my Kindle.
