Overview

High adventure on the colonial frontier in time of war

Readers who are unfamiliar with 'Greyslaer' but know the iconic 'Last of the Mohicans' will find that this book shares many of the qualities of James Fenimore Cooper's novel both in terms of style and storyline. However, instead of taking place in the wilderness at the time of the French and Indian War, 'Greyslaer' is set in the Mohawk Valley some twenty years later. The area is now settled and, as the narrative begins, in turmoil and on the brink of the being embroiled in the American Revolution. Those who enjoy tales of adventure will find much to please them in these pages. The young hero, Greyslaer, is a patriot supported by friends in the militia and comrades among the backwoodsmen, rangers and trappers led by the faithful hunter, Balt. There is also, of course, a cast of unpleasant Tories, dastardly renegades given to abduction and cold blooded murder, distressed damsels, Oneida Iroquois Indian allies, noble Indian foes and numerous howling savages. British officers who appear acquit themselves well and bravely, despite being on the wrong side as events move inexorably towards the pivotal conflict at Oriskany. This is American romantic adventure from the early 19th century and will delight all who love such books. Observant readers might notice similarity with the action of 'Drums Along the Mohawk,' although the literary pedigree of Hoffman's writing is from an earlier time to that of Edmonds. This special Leonaur edition of 'Greyslaer' includes all sections of the original two volume work in a single volume edition, making this a fine alternative for the collections of those who know the book.

Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
