This is the second volume in the most complete and compact edition available of Parkman's rich romantic narrative history of the struggle for control of the American continent. Count Frontenac and New France under Louis XIV, tells how France might have won her imperial struggle with England. Conflict over the developing western regions of North America erupted in a series of colonial wars. As narrated by Parkman in A Half-Century of Conflict, these American campaigns, while only part of a larger, global struggle, prepared the colonies for the American revolution. In Montcalm and Wolfe, Parkman describes the fatal confrontation of the two great French and English commanders whose climactic battle marked the end of French power in America.

In 1846, twenty-three-year-old Bostonian Francis Parkman rode west to see the wilderness firsthand, and to experience the tribal life of the unconquered Sioux. The result was a classic American memoir, The Oregon Trail. The Conspiracy of Pontiac, his powerful account of a fierce and tragic Indian rebellion of the 1760s against European encroachment, was the first of the historis that were to establish Parkman's reputation as America's greatest narrative historian.
