THE TALL CAPTAINS

A novel which brings sharply to mind the best seller of some years ago, Quietly My Captain Waits, is set in Quebec during the last stand of the French in Canada under the great Montcalm. The story revolves around the falling and rising fortunes of Duncan Crosbie, a Scot and an exile who joins the French to fight the English. His fortunes, backgrounded by the portrait of an unknown frontier where power and poverty were equally striking, make an exciting story of derring do.
