A-Z: D = Daniel Day Lewis!

Today is a special treat for fans of Daniel Day Lewis: the Last of the Mohicans one of my favourite movies!    

 The movie was based on the novel "Last of the Mohicans": A Narrative of 1757 written by James Fenimore Cooper. It was first published in February 1826 - the second book of the "Leatherstocking Tales" pentalogy and the best known. The Pathfinder was published 14 years later in 1840: the sequel.

The story takes place in 1757, during the French and Indian War (the Seven Years' War), when France and Great Britain battled for control of the North American colonies. During this war, the French called on allied Native American tribes to fight against the more numerous British colonists.

Today I'm bowing out of the A-Z challenge, because since day one my present WIP has suffered, and as I have revisions on the go as well, plus the garden is crying out for attention, something has to give. That said,  I'll be slipping back into visiting blogs as normal and posting as and when.  BTW: Clannad are my fav band!

Sorry: this item removed. Better that than have my blog crash!

Before I go: any blogfests going down in May onward let me know and I'll post up your banner.
