Roger the Ranger
by Eliza F. Pollard
A Story of Border Life Among the
Indians, Frenchmen, Englishmen, wars, strained
friendships, and romance are all interwoven in Eliza Pollard’s fast paced historical
When Charles Langlade deserted his birth place in
upper Canada to marry an Indian squaw and then to fight with his Indian tribe for the French
against the English, he also lost his best friend, Roger Boscowen, who led his rangers for the
English against the French.
Meanwhile the historically famous General Louis de
Montcalm entered Canada on behalf of the French and things took a turn in favour for the French due
to the help of Langlade. But would the jealous government of French Canada succeed in using De
Montcalm’s daughter Mercedes — who had come with her father from France with the intention to enter
a Canadian convent — to destroy Montcalm’s fame?
And would Charles and Roger indeed fight each other?
Would their friendship ever be restored?
