THE FIRST REBEL

Grand reading -- this biography of one James Smith, in the years between 1755 and 1799. Absorbing adventure yarn, full of ""the spirt of '76"" with no flag waving. Young Smith was in on the first shot, later fell prisoner, was adopted into an Indian tribe, eventually escaped, but finally tumbled into events in the outposts of war in Quebec. Good Americana and as exciting reading as an adventure story.
