The Forest and the Fort

by Hervey Allen

The Forest and the Fort

This is the story of Salathiel Albine who was captured by the Indians as a child, and brought up by them. He managed to escape and return to Fort Pitt, the site of present day Pittsburgh. It is also the story of the siege of Fort Pitt and of the journey to Bedford Village after the siege was raised.

This book offers an exciting glimpse into what life was like in the Pennsylvania wilderness during early colonial times. The author makes you feel as though you are with Salathiel Albine as he grows up with the Indians, learns about life in the wilderness, and struggles with his identity. This is a great book for someone who wants to understand more about what life was like for the brave people who settled western Pennsylvania.

Cost: $19.95 + tax, shipping & handling.
