The scenes of daily life, the struggles of the colonial people of importance to maintain their dignity against Indian raids and other encroachments, are well pictured. There is a very entertaining love story, of which the somewhat haughty, willful Antonia is the heroine. All comes out well in the end for the lover, who is endowed with a goodly amount of patience. The atmosphere of the story is very pleasing. One is glad to see old New York life coming to the front in fiction." Outlook 22 June 1901; B&W Illustrations; 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall; 258 pages
