The Scottish Chiefs
Jane Porter was born at Durham in 1776, but at the age of four she went to Edinburgh with her family, was brought up in Scotland, and had the privilege of knowing Sir... More > Walter Scott. Her first romance, "Thaddeus of Warsaw," was published in 1803, soon after she had removed from Edinburgh to London. Her next romance, "The Scottish Chiefs," did not appear until 1810. It won an immediate popularity, which survived even the formidable rivalry of the "Waverley Novels," and the book remained a favourite, especially in Scotland, during most of the last century. The story abounds in historical inaccuracies, and the characters are addicted to conversing in the dialect of melodrama-but these blemishes did not abate the vogue of this exciting and spirited work with the reading public. Miss Porter remained a prominent figure in London literary society until her death on May 24, 1850.< Less

More > it shows us the beauty and grandeur of the life of the red man when he crossed the plains. The hero of the story is Shoz-Dijiji, the Black Bear, whose father and mother, Jerry and Annie McDuff, Scotch immigrants, were killed by a tribe of Apaches while crossing the plains to California. The infant was adopted by the chief of the tribe and raised as an Indian. Ironically, he was taught a hatred of the whites, which he bore with fanatical intensity. In the background of this vivid tale of the Indian is a romance, different than romance as we know it. Nevertheless, love is love in any language with every people, in all climes, and THE WAR CHIEF is a magnificent picture of Indian love. Written by America’s great versatile author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, it is another book that has that intangible something—personality.< Less
