The Chase of Saint-Castin and Other Stories of the French in the New World

The Triumphs of Eugène Valmont

The Triumphs of Eugène Valmont
The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont (1906) brings together tales of the multifarious exploits of Robert Barr's elegant and cunning sleuth, Valmont, a brilliantly ironic parody of Sherlock Holmes. Exhibiting the crucial combination of realism and imagination that characterizes the finest crime writing, the stories exude playfulness and blend mystery and quasi-Gothic thrills with humorous detours and romantic adventure. A notable figure in 1890s literary London and a friend of Conan Doyle, Barr was acutely aware of style as a form of statement and the stories are full of literary effects, commentary on the detective mystery genre, and Valmont's disparaging reflections on English values.

The French in the United States

release date: Jan 01, 2002
The French in the United States
Contemporary French immigrants have a high degree of integration into American society in terms of socio-demographic features and behavior patterns. While the foreign-born generation maintains a French identity beneath the surface, acculturation seems inevitable in later generations, due to a variety of social and attitudinal factors. Lindenfeld examines these factors, shedding light on a population that has, until now, remained fairly invisible.

French and Indians of Illinois River

release date: Jan 01, 2001
French and Indians of Illinois River
Complex and paradoxical, Nehemiah Matson (1816-1873) celebrated the occupation of the Middle West by European pioneers even as he labored to preserve the memory of the natives these pioneers replaced. And while he perpetuated the memory of the Indians who were driven out of the territory, he nevertheless accumulated wealth selling their land to the pioneers. Rodney O. Davis notes in the foreword to this book that Matson combined the attributes of a scholar with those of a salesman and promoter. Matson's historical writings are valuable even when he deals with well-known events because his personal perspective makes his observations unique. Without the stories and reminiscences he collected, much valuable information would have been lost, especially since many of his informants, both Indian and European, were illiterate. Because his informants often told conflicting stories, Matson admitted that "harmonizing all conflicting accounts . . . has not been a success".
