The French-Indian War series are wonderful adventure stories written by childrens author Joseph Altsheler.
This series details the adventures of Robert Lennox, Tayoga and their older partner Dave Willet, a guide and hunter.
The lives of the three, their interaction with the tribes, and the description of life in the forests of upstate New York are told with detail and a historical accuracy that makes it easy to understand how this conflict set the stage for America's decision to strike out on its own independent course.
