New Book Good-But Not Equal to Parkman
This book is quite a good, solid effort at dealing with this large and important historical drama--it essentially lays out the story effectively. However, it is certainly no match for the high scholarship, and minute detail of Francis Parkman's illustrious volumes written so many yrs. ago. Parkman was not just a great historian-and scholar--Phi Beta Kappa--Harvard-- a graduate of the Harvard Law School as well--a training I dare say which prepared him well for his massive history producing effort--some 50 yrs. in the making--visting most of the locations mentioned-- and,including the 'original French' translations w/in his work--tremendous maps, and drawings. It is an excellently written drama and it will never be equalled. Nevertheless, in spite of this, Mr. Anderson has managed to 're-produce' a good and entertaining single vol. work worth reading.
