"A classic coming-of-age novel set in the midst of the French and Indian War In the wilderness of the Northeast, Robert Lennox's life is staked on how well he can evade the fierce Tandakora and his persistent warriors. Attuned to every sound and movement in the forest, he follows birds and hides his tracks in bubbling brooks en route to joining up with his friends Tayoga, an Onondaga warrior, and David Willet, a skilled hunter. Two forces compete in Robert's mind: a deep reverence for the beauty of the natural world, and an entrenched unease over ever-lurking danger. First published in 1919, The Lords of the Wild is a heralded entry in Joseph A. Altsheler's French and Indian War Series, which follows the exploits of young Robert Lennox and his friends as they are embroiled in one of the most tumultuous conflicts of American colonial history.
