Book Description

Although unrecognized by most historians, there is no more valiant tale within Pennsylvania’s frontier lore than the raising and defending of Fort Robinson by the families of that name.

For ten savage years, hostile Delaware and Shawnee warriors sought to overwhelm the Robinson’s wilderness stockade and drive all settlers from the Endless Hills of the Allegheny Mountains.

No British regulars or even hastily gathered militias defended the log walls of Robinson’s fort. The Robinson clan built and defended their wilderness stockade. Fire arrows flew and muskets thundered. Men and women were killed there, and others were carried into brutal captivity. Starvation and massacre threatened. Cabins burned and fields were torched. Others fled across the eastern mountains, but the Robinsons held. They fought until they won.

This is their story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable story with engaging characters October 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written and well researched book. I enjoyed both story and characters. The author also does a good job in helping the reader understand what motivated both sides of the conflict. Neither white nor red were all good or all bad. I will read more of this author's works. The story contains no sex scenes or overly graphic violence making it suitable for younger readers wanting to know more about this period of history.

Fort Robinson is a very interesting historical novel which enables the reader to enter into a time gone by that has been lost to most people. Having been born in Central Pennsylvania, I find the references to locations enlightened by the historical information related through the novel. The book seems to be well researched and interestingly written. There is a nice balance between history and action to keep the story moving without getting bogged down in minute facts. At the same time there is enough historical foundation that prevents the story from flying off into realms of fantasy. It is a good read that brings both historical insight and novel adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little-known History June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this account of out-back, very local history. It's difficult to imagine the day-to-day stress placed upon the settlers on the fringe of the frontier. Chandler did a superb job of bringing this reality to the forefront. The planning, the decisions, the mind-set become more understandable in the context created by the author. I want to visit this site for a first-hand look at this piece of history and the setting in which it occurred.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insights of our early settlers July 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Easy, insightful reading about the early years of our country's evolution from our American Indians, new settlers and the country's characteristics. It portrays a good balance between each allowing the reader to make certain personal conclusions about each without creating too much prior prejudice by the author. I have recommend it already to several friends, particularly those from Pennsylvania.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a good Book June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book did a good job of showing how the people of the time lived and fought. What drove them and their reasons for fighting. The book did develop a little slowly in places, but overall was very interesting. I also liked the way the author showed the Indians point of view.
