1913. Part Six of Eighteen Volumes. Gilbert, Canadian-born novelist and politician, his literary reputation lies primarily on his earlier descriptive, dramatic and historic Canadian stories. He moved to England in 1889 and later served in Parliament. Parker explains that in this edition of his work, each volume will have a special introduction setting forth, as far as possible, the relation of each work to the author, to its companion works, and to the scheme of his literary life. This volume contains two novels: When Valmond Came to Pontiac, written in five weeks, was founded on an incident the author experienced as a small child. The picture of Valmond is drawn from a man who stood in front of the little hotel and scattered his hot pennies to the children of the village. It also contains a story about Napoleon that his father told him when he was a child; The Trail of the Sword, a historical novel, tells the early history of the struggles between the French and English and the North American Continent. In the story he gives the advantage to his gallant French adventurer's chivalrous but somewhat merciless soul, since it draws a better picture than his more phlegmatic but brave and honourable antagonist, George Gering.
