New England Captives to Canada written by Emma Lewis Coleman is a two volume set dealing with the time period between 1677 and 1760 during the French and Indian Wars. These volumes name all the captives and provide biographical data on each, but the sketches on those people who had been covered in True Stories of New England Captives Carried to Canada by C. Alice Baker are abbreviated in comparison to those who had not been covered in the first compilation. This work provides an extensive picture of the Indian attacks on New England communities over about an eighty-year period, and in terms of identifying their captives, it is probably the most definitive work ever published. Sources are cited in footnotes and an appendix identifies various people and places mentioned in the text. There is a complete name index.  Volume 1 is 439 pages and Volume 2 is 452 pages.
