Little is known about Adam Dollard (referred to as Daulac on his death certificate) except that he came to New France in 1658 under mysterious circumstances and had a military background in France.

Adam Dollard in the spring of 1660, assumed the leadership of an expedition to the Ottawa River. Along with 17 young French companions left Ville-Marie (Montreal) to deter an army of 800 Iroquois who were intent on invading Quebec and Montreal later that year to remove the French from their hunting grounds once and for all.

These young Frenchmen set up camp at the foot of the Long Sault (rapids) along the Ottawa River and were joined eventually by 40 Huron’s and 4 Algonquin’s who were sworn enemies of the Iroquois.

Scarcely had they had time to put an old abandon fort in shape when 300 Iroquois burst forth along the river. They were the advance-guard of the 800 Iroquois forming at the mouth of the Richelieu on the St. Lawrence.

Fighting ensued and the Iroquois were driven back several times with severe losses. At that point, they sent for the entire army of Iroquois to take this little fort. After five days of fighting, the Iroquois by overwhelming numbers managed to enter the fort and kill all the survivors but three. These unfortunate men were divided up and taken to the individual Iroquois villages to be tortured to death.

A third of the Iroquois army is said to have perished in this battle. The Iroquois were appalled by the fact that the defense was put up by only 17 Frenchmen since most of the Huron’s abandoned them, and so they withdrew to their own territory among the five Iroquois nations. The planned attack on Montreal and Quebec was postponed indefinitely.

The domination of man over nature has reached an unprecedented and critical stage. Rationalism leads the world and humanity knows the consequences. The mediation of terrestrial beings is opposed to the ideas of predation and greed that govern our century.

In the subtle presentation of the author, earthworms, through endearing actors, offer a model inspired by their relationship to the earth. Allegory invites us to associate ourselves with the song of life that fills the void and raises us to its fullness. In fact, earthworms consider themselves to be true mediators of triumphant nature. As such, they take portions to give, share and build the present and the future. The beauty of nature and the people who live in Lombricia will not go unnoticed.

From beginning to end, the image of shadows will lead us to the magnificent reign of its original essences. When the enemy comes to attack and destroy, nature shows once more that it has resources to make the light triumph and deliver a message of peace and hope: life awaits you to express yourself in everything and especially in you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

The environment is the great passion of the author. This is the second book he proposes for the edition. He explores here a second literary genre through which the power of thought and the beauty of words come together to serve an idea: to protect the earth.

To call Breck Stewart a musician would be a dangerous misnomer. The young billionaire mogul was so much more – a genius, a fashion plate, a world-renowned member of the legendary guitarist – Nobel Alden’s – band.

Life was not always so grand, and Breck never forgot the impoverished gutter from which he pulled him and his young family to the luck and the fame and the fortune.

Someone from the life he’d left had never forgotten it, either…and they were out to remind Breck of his meager existence for which they believed they were now owed a mortal fee.

From abusive childhood in Scotland to the Gold Coast of Chicago’s elite, Breck bound together with his closest friends to survive long enough to find the fiends that kidnapped his family…and those now out to take his life. Sacrificing himself on the streets of Chicago, offered as bait to those who could not resist the delicious temptation of taking his money and his power, he held close to his vests the cards that would trump the assassins’ plans.

The evil strangers underestimated the determination and willpower of someone whose life had been spent fighting seemingly insurmountable odds, and no risk was too great to bring his family back.
