Book-on-CD Edition

True Stories of New England Captives Carried to Canada During the Old French and Indian Wars provides the reader with the gripping history of Indian attacks at Wells and York, Maine; Dover, New Hampshire; and Hatfield, Haverhill, and Deerfield, Massachusetts. Events leading up to the attacks and the attacks themselves are described in considerable detail. There is an emphasis on how those engagements affected specific people, especially those who were captured and removed to Canada.

The book begins by briefly describing the early contacts between Europeans and First Nations inhabitants along the Atlantic coast from Cuba to Newfoundland prior to the establishment of permanent European settlements in North America.

The reader must take into consideration that this book, as is true with most published accounts of armed confict, reports on the events from the perspective of one side. In this case the story is slanted toward a European/White point of view. That in mind, the writer provides very specific details of the attacks as they relate to the events and to specific individuals.

Of great interest is the extensive genealogical and biographical information about the following families:
  • Baker
  • Nims
  • Otis
  • Plaisted
  • Rishworth
  • Rising
  • Sayward
  • Sheldon
  • Silver
  • Stockwell
