Overview

As Major Robert Rogers's rangers make their way along the hills by the Lake Memphramagog, young Tom Evans, his uncle, Captain John Evans, and Mohawk Indian guide Toe-Lee-Ma are aware that danger and treachery lay ahead. Fort Ticonderoga had been laced with explosives by the French and exploded into a great fiery inferno, while a spy lurked in the forest by nearby cabins with his friend and ally, the fierce Abenaki Indian Satanis. Now, somewhere in this cold, dark, snowy forest, Tom and his Uncle John must find the young Sally Williams, alive or dead, and take their vengeance on Satanis and his counterpart, a man by the name of Messieur Bouchet. But first they have to survive the wilderness trek hundreds of miles up country to the mighty fortress of Quebec-to save their homeland or die. It is a long, desperate journey filled with danger in freezing temperatures, through Abenaki territory, but go they must, to fulfill The Border Covenant. The Great French General the Marquis de Montcalm-Gorzon thought it couldn't be done, and he was counting on it for the sake of all of New France.

Editorial Reviews

ROUNDUP MAGAZINE Western Writers of America
...I couldn't help but be drawn along the frozen trails of the Northeast. The book contains short biographies of well-known historical characters, terms of battle, a timeline of the French-Indian war, and a copy of Rogers' Rules of Ranging, 1759, which in itself makes the book worth reading.

------Letter From Mary Ann H. I generally have at least two books "in process" at any given time so I didn't pick it up until last weekend. I have always enjoyed historical fiction and I literally could not put this book down. It's one of those books that you ... just need to see how it ends, you know what I mean. The historical references tie in very nicely with the storyline; I found myself thinking of Cooper's "Last of the Mohicans" which I need to read it again! Additionally, the maps were helpful (I got out my magnifying glass) and the biographical sketches of the various key players in the battle(s) to capture and hold on to Fort Ticonderoga were a nice addition.
