Sir Auther C. Doyle of "Sherlock Holmes" fame is a very very talented writer. Much research went into this novel and the reading shows the worth of it.
It's a heck of a book about France and the Americas with villians, heroes, kings, queens, ladies, ship captains, Indians, churchmen, and all the rest of the era's cast of characters.
Sir A.C. Doyle hit the nail on the head with this one! A great read!
Fighting Indians in the Canadian wilderness, this has it all. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is far more
Than a detective story writer. This story along with Valley of Fear are my faverite. White Company
Is another great one. All very well written great use of language and descriptive choice of words!
The courage and resolution of the Hugenots was legendary as the majority went into exile rather than recant their evangelical faith in Christ. Consequently, they lost family, friends, property, and employment. It's a cruel chapter in France's history.
The novel begins in France but finishes in Canada. Along the way we visit the inner sanctum of King Louis' palace, travel through the ice-berg infested waters of the north Atlantic sea, and journey in the wilderness of New France.
Doyle also wrote The Tragedy of the Korosko,: And the Green Flag, and Other Stories of War and Sport,
Both adults and young adults, especially those of Huguenot descent, will love this classic adventure story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The reader will coincidently learn a great amount of good history while racing through through the book's imaginative scenes of traveling to Canada. The main characters are stranded on an ice floe, attacked by Indians, and hunted by an unpleasant Jesuit.
Courage and bravery, derring-do and a sense of honor characterize not only the featured Huguenot family, but also woodsmen, soldiers, a crippled Catholic priest and an Iroquois woman married to a Frenchman.
