Book Two of the Alford Saga

Thomas Manning, branded a deserter from the British Navy, is forced to change his name to James Alford to avoid the death penalty.

Determined to forge a new life on the Gaspé Peninsula, he struggles to survive the harsh landscape and win the hand of Catherine Garrett. After working in harsh sub-zero woods, he saves the life of an orphan working in a sawmill, and so gains crucial lumber to build a homestead out of intractable wilderness. But first he must battle murderous brigands to rescue a starving bull calf he hopes will be the first of the oxen he so desperately needs to clear his land. Finally, heroically surviving Canada?s worst-ever famine, he faces down implacable bureaucracies to keep the farm he has been fighting to bring under cultivation.

A captivating and fast-paced adventure, The Survivor is Book Two of the Alford Saga, a series chronicling two hundred years of Canadian history, as seen through the eyes of one settler?s family.

Editorial Reviews

"The Survivor is detailed, dramatic, entertaining and addicting. This book surpassed my expectations. . . I stand by my earlier statement that this needs to be placed into the hands of every young student learning about Canadian History."
