This tells the story of the French and Indian War in North America, in particular, it follows the life and times of Sir William Johnson, the British Superintendent of Indian Affairs who nearly singlehandedly kept the majority of the Iroquois Confederacy allied to the Crown during a time of great crisis as they clashed with the French and their Indian allies for control not only of the Ohio Country, but the whole of the Continent.
Allan Eckert's NARRATIVES OF AMERICA are true sagas of the brave men and courageous women who won our land. Every character and event in this sweeping series is drawn from actual history, and woven into the vast and powerful epic that was America's westward expansion. Every incident described in the books actually occurred; every date is historically accurate; and every character, regardless how major or how minor actually lived the role in which he is portrayed. Fascinating! Wilderness Empire is Book 2 of a series of six.
