A great story on the theme of American Colonial Adventures is:

The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper, published by Arcturus Publishing. The classic story of the French Indian War and the capture of the English Fort William Henry by the French.

The movie of the same name, with Daniel Day Lewis, provides an excellent visual reference point to this story.
