Title: The Cold Journey

Author: Grace Zaring Stone

Price: $5.50

 

 

Like wolves the red men descended upon the sleeping village. Torn from their beds the settlers were forced to watch as the savages burned, looted—murdered.. . From the smoking ruins of their homes the captives were dragged into the forests, handed over to the Indians to be ransomed

—if they survived!

 

IN FEBRUARY, 1704, Deerfield, Massachu­setts (called Redfield in this novel), was sacked by a party of French and Indians. Some of the inhabitants were murdered in their beds; others were carried off by the raiders toward Canada. Basing her novel on historical records, Mrs. Stone has brought her brilliant talents into full play to tell the story of these survivors.

There is lovely young Captive Carter whose strong young body arouses the desires of a French Captain. And there is the Captain himself, bru­talized by years of Indian fighting. You will meet Lettice Lygon (of the cover illustration), an Eng­lish beauty who seemed too fragile to endure this nightmare. And you will learn what happened to a hot-blooded young Lieutenant when he saw Lettice in the custody of her Indian captor.

 

Here is an unforgettable story of one of the most savage episodes of our frontier history.
