Margaret Elphinstone - On the brink of the War of 1812, fought across the Canadian border with the US, Rachel Greenhow, a Quaker missionary from England, disappears in the uncharted wilderness beyond the settled territories. Everyone gives her up for dead. But her brother Mark refuses to abandon hope and embarks on an unforgettable search across a vast landscape. The young Canada-its fledgling cities and staggering landscape-is brought vividly to life as Mark sets off with the ‘voyageurs’, the men who canoe immense distances on the fur-trade route, to discover the truth of Rachel’s final journey. In Voyageurs, a gripping and hugely enjoyable adventure set against the magnificent backdrop of nineteenth-century Canada has been created. (14 x 22cm)
