Note from the publisher: Because of his deep interest in and knowledge of American history, Hervey Allen undertook to write a saga of colonial times-- in Pennsylvania, the Ohio country, and New York State. It was to be called The Disinherited. The protagonist was one Salathiel Albine. Mr. Allen finished the first three volumes of this great novel: The Forest and the Fort, Bedford Village, and Toward the Morning. He had written a section of the fourth volume-- The City in the Dawn-- when death cut short his labors. Fortunately the completed chapters bring Salathiel Albine at last from the forest to the city, the symbol of man's pilgrimage from savagery to civilization. To make this single-volume edition possible, much careful and judicious editing has had to be done in order to retain the vitality of Mr. Allen's fascinating story and of his deep insight into life and people. This editing was done by Julie Eidesheim, who worked closely with Mr. Allen throughout the writing of these books. THE CITY IN THE DAWN -- Containing: THE FOREST AND THE FORT, BEDFORD VILLAGE and TOWARD THE MORNING. A saga of colonial times-- in Pennsylvania, the Ohio country, and New York State. We follow Salathiel Albine through the New American "West", meeting people, distrust, war and perhaps love.
