This is a book-length presentation of Longfellow’s long poem about a woman’s search for her husband after they are separated in an unjust relocation of their town while North America was still being colonized. It’s a very romantic tale and it’s usually included in collections of Longfellow’s verse. On its own it has gotten very little attention and interest in it seems to have stopped entirely. I recommend letting this go. Those interested in this story can find it in another volume of his work.
