I remember I told myself around the New Year that I would not buy any more books. I’ve kept my word, pestering my subject-area librarian at Baa Ram University with requests and relying heavily on our in-state library exchange system. Reading, enjoying, and returning the books I’ve been reading has been awesome!
However, as I warned you, I might make an exception for books I find in used book shops and old junk stores, and I’m afraid that last Sunday I did buy a book, Maurice Thompson’s Alice of Old Vincennes (Indianapolis: The Bowen-Merrell Company, 1900), which was a famous smash and was among the top ten best-selling books of 1900 and 1901. My first edition copy cost me $4.50, but you can get it for eight or nine times more online. (Here in Northern Colorado, I adore my old junk store haunts!)
What does it matter if it’s a stale historical novel from the previous century? I bought the book because it is based on the British capture of Fort Vincennes (now Vincennes, Indiana) in 1779 during the American Revolutionary War. Vincennes was once a French fort, and the book claims to tell the story of Alice, a beautiful yet rebellious orphaned teen who was adopted by a famous French family in Vincennes. Of course, SPOILER Warning, she turns out to be an Anglo-American girl who was abducted by Indians as an infant before being “rescued” by the French family who raised her. In short, it’s a traditional turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival romanticism set-piece that depicts the French and Indian presence in the Old Northwest as a charming yet doomed remnant of the past, complete with a dashing young Anglo-American military hero ready to sweep Alice off her feet and return her to life among English-speaking Protestants.
