Title: Drums Along the Mohawk
Publisher NotesThe Martins endure the grave hazards of pioneer life in the Mohawk Valley and cling tenaciously to the land for which they fought
Industry Reviews"['Drums Along the Mohawk'] is no ordinary historical novel, no mere portrayal of a boy-and-girl affair against the nebulous background of ill-digested history. Nor is it a glamorous picture of famous men who direct battles and 'make history.' Indeed, Mr. Edmonds has done here something infinitely more difficult, something that makes history live in a way in which no usual historical novel, or even written history, ever makes it live....Most of the heroes of 'Drums Along the Mohawk' are farmers. Theirs is no glamorous call to the colors. They'd rather stay at home and cultivate the virgin land to which they have come from afar, and which they so often fought for in endless clashes with the Indians."
Walter Edmonds' "Drums Along The Mohawk" is a classic tale of Mohawk Valley's forgotten pioneers during the Revolutionary War. "Drums Along The Mohawk" is the story of Gilbert Martin and his young wife struggling against hardships almost too great to endure. They helped give to America a legend which still stirs the heart. In the midst of love and hate, life and death, danger and disaster, they stuck to the acres which were theirs, and fought a war without ever quite understanding it. "Drums Along The Mohawk"'s intimate and historical portraits are as appealing today as when they were first published in 1936. Long out of print and difficult to obtain, this Syracuse University Press edition is a welcome introduction to a whole new generation of readers.
