RICHARDSON, John. The Canadian Brothers; or, The Prophecy Fulfilled : A Tale of the Late American War. Introduction by Carl F. Klinck. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1976). Pp. (6),[vii]-xxiv,(6),-220,-227,(5). Two volumes in one. 8vo, printed brownish card covers with black and brown lettering to front cover and black lettering to white spine. Literature of Canada: Poetry and Prose in Reprint, volume 18. General Editor: Douglas Lochhead. "'The Canadian Brothers' combines all the excitement of a sentimental wilderness romance -- mysterious and surprising occurrences, terrors by night and day, deadly combats, haunted minds, consuming passions -- with an account of first-hand experiences during the War of 1812. [...] 'The Canadian Brothers', originally published in 1840, is a sequel to 'Wacousta' and takes up the family history about fifty years later, having its historical basis in Richardson's own experience (and that of his brother) in the War of1812. As a young man, Richardson took part in much of the military action described in the book, including the shelling of Frenchtown and the defeat of the British at Moraviantown. His accountof the misery of the prisoners captured there by the Americans also reflects personal experience. General Brock, Captain Barclay, and Tecumseh are gloriously themselves and are accorded respectful tributes." - from the rear cover. Very good. 15.00
