Altsheler, Joseph A: The Rulers of the Lakes. V1. 14 July 2009
Altsheler was born in Three Springs, Kentucky to Joseph and Louise Altsheler. In 1885, he took a job at the Louisville Courier-Journal as a reporter and later, an editor. He started working for the New York World in 1892, first as the paper's Hawaiian correspondent and then as the editor of the World's tri-weekly magazine. Due to a lack of suitable stories, he began writing children's stories for the magazine.
Altsheler married Sarah Boles on May 30, 1888, and had one son. He and his family were in Germany when World War I began. The difficult journey home took a huge toll on Altsheler's health and he was never the same. He died in New York City in 1919.
“The Rulers of the Lakes” is a complete story, but it is also the third volume of the French and Indian War Series, following “The Hunters of the Hills” and “The Shadow of the North.” Robert Lennox, Tayoga, Willet, and all the important characters in the earlier romances reappear.
