Haskell, Maine, A Bibliography of Its History 113.

"The six soldiers who crawled out of a swamp in Canada on July 30, 1775, were advance agents of an American expeditionary army assigned by the Continental Congress to sever the vast province of Quebec from theBritish crown. The attempt failed, but its turbulent story, a comparatively unknown part of the American Revolution, is stirringly retold in these pages by an expert on military history.

In May, Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain boys had taken Fort Ticonderoga, and Benjamin Arnold had wiped out the small British fleet on Lake Champlain. In Canada, Sir Guy Carleton, Governor of Quebec, waited on the alert for a rebel invasion, which was, unknownto him, to have two proings. The tale's main focus is Arnold's ill-fated march with his troops through the Maine wilderness to Quebec. This journey by an 'impudent little army of American' - some six hundred miles from the coast of New England to the St. Lawrence shore - is contrasted with GeneralRichard Montgomery's more statley siege of St. Jean, and the capture of Montreal. The narrative reaches a crescendo in the night battle fought for Quebec in a whirling snowstorm, during wehich Montgomery was killed and Arnold wounded. On the British side, Sir Guy Carleton emerges as a brave and admirable adversary." = from the dj flaps.

Myron Smith, American Navy 1789-1860 : Bibliography 573; Fredriksen, Free Trade and Sailors’ Rights : A Bibliography of the War of 1812 E107.

"Here for the first time is the exciting, dramatic story of the naval engagements fought on Lake Champlain and Lake George. Many of the most significant battles of the whole period between the first landings by Europeans on the North American continent and the conclusion of the War of 1812 some two centurie s later took place on these two lakes. Situated on the most important north-south gateway in North America — with the St. Lawrence River to the north and the Hudson River to the south — the two lakes were a natural focal point for the forces attempting to control the eastern seaboard from New York north. First France and England, later England and the new United States, threw their best soldiers and sailors into the desperate struggles for the region." - from the dj flap.

"Lorsque Mathieu Lelièvre s'envola de Montréal vers Paris, cette année-là, auteur d'un premier roman dont on annonçait la publication prochaine à Paris, boursier du Conseil des Arts, donc déjà riche en imagination, quelleimpatieno». n'éprouvait-il pas de voir le pays tant vénéré depuis son plus jeune age, la France, Paris ? N'allait-il pas seulement vers la conciliati on de l'Europe de ses ancêtres enfin rapprochée de son cœur moderne et romantique — conciliation avec ce Québec souterrain dont il transportait partout avec lui les grondements de révolte ? N'allait-il pas enfin vers la vie ?" Voilà, le sujet est posé : la découverte par un jeune écrivain québécois de la société parisienne — d'une certaine société parisienne. Sur cette aventure, sur ce monde, Marie-Claire Blais pose un regard d'une lucidité redoutable. Mais il y a de la tendresse aussi, et de la pité, dans ces pages ou l'auieur d'Une saison dans la vie d'Emmanuel interoge le destin de tous les"étrangers" — quelle que soit leur "étrangeté". Un roman frémissant, déchi ré et déchirant, qui confirme la place singulière qu'occupe Marie-Claire Biais dans les lettres québecoises et françaises d'aujourd'hui." (from the back cover).
