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.

"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."
