ENGL 330 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "This book takes place in the Mohawk valley and is about a man named Mr. Kingslake, his associates, and his family. While on their way to the mansion of Mr. Vreeland, they have to go through a part of the woods that is inhabited by Indians. When they are stopped on the road because of a broken wagon, an Indian comes out of nowhere and attacks them. They end up shooting him dead. Later, they comes across a friendly and well known Indian named Miutu of the Seneca, who is described as having all of the vices of the whites, while retaining all of the virtues of his own people. Mr. Kingslake runs off from the group to escape the Indians that attacked him. From then on, the rest of the family go through many trials and tribulations. Years pass and Mr. Kingslake is still missing and Mt. Vreeland’s mansion is taken over by Indians. Over the years many stories are told about a Phantom Horseman. No one knows if this horseman is real or not, but many people say that they have seen him. At the end of the novel, the identity of the horseman is revealed, as well as the story about how he became the horseman."--Riquia Hill, undergraduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 330, Spring 2018
