Description

A novel about Yorkshire settlers set in 18th century Nova Scotia. "The arrival in Nova Scotia of a group of settlers from Yorkshire on the eve of the American Revolution is probably one reason why there were thirteen and not fourteen colonies in revolt. The Yorkshiremen stood firm for Britain and the sparks of republican unrest in Nova Scotia sputtered and went out. The Crabtree family was typical of Yorkshiremen. Strong, stubborn people with vast patience that could suddenlyerupt into terrifying rage. And Tristram was a typical Crabtree. Here is a story ot pioneer men and women set down on a frontier in a harsh land. They had to match their strength to the task of taming it, temper their violence to the violence of its moods. There was no retreat—only victory or disaster. Tristram was the true son of such a race, strong, emotional, and violent in his emotions. Will Bird's Tristram's Salvation set firmly against a factual background brings you the story of a powerful man caught up in a situation he cannot control. It is real and violent and human."
