Altsheler’s French and Indian War Series books are bound together in this Kindle edition: The Sun of Quebec & The Hunters of the HillsThe series consists of six novels.

The Hunters of the HillsThis is the first volume of a series dealing with the great struggle of France and England and their colonies for dominion in North America, culminating with the fall of Quebec. It is largely concerned with the Iroquois, the mighty league known in their own language as the Hodenosaunee, for which both French and English were high bidders. Altsheler notes that he consulted many authorities, and was not conscious of any historical error.2. The Shadow of the NorthThe Shadow of the North, while an independent story, in itself, is also the second volume of the Great French and Indian War series which began with The Hunters of the Hills. All the important characters of the first romance reappear in the second.3. The Rulers of the LakesYoung Robert Lennox and his friend Tayoga undertake a dangerous trip through the wilderness to warn Fort Refuge of the approach of hostile forces. The story concludes with the battle of Lake George. The book is set almost completely in the wilderness, and provides an accurate picture of Iroquois life and warfare.4. The Masters of the PeaksThe Masters of the Peaks is a story of the great north woods and the fourth volume of the French and Indian War Series. Tayoga, Willet, and all the other important characters of the earlier romances reappear5.
