Description

The Mountain Fighter contains six chapters that follow Captain William Little's adventures, and include other key figures of the imaginary World especially Ethan Allen. Yet  set in 1861 this military tale seems to draw on U.S. Civil War history. Captain Little defeats the rebel army at "Philippi" and participates in the capture and hanging of John Brown.  Some of this history is cast as "stories about war" that William Little tells to young Jimmy Allen. The collaboration of these imaginary World antagonists in US. Civil War events leads Arthur Nelson to note that "now the heroes are good firiends."
