Historical Setting: North America, 1759 A. D.

Through misadventure, the hero of this story becomes involved in the historic struggle between Britain and France for supremacy on the North American continent. The reader will be taken through many battles of this conflict, meet a young George Washington and General Braddock as they fight the French and Indians; join up with Roger's Rangers; and learn of the legendary generals Wolfe and Montcalm.

With Wolfe in Canada is a model of what a children's book should be with its moving tale of military exploit and thrilling adventure. It provides a lesson in history instructively and geographically, whilst infusing into the dead facts of history new life.
