"The best work of its kind. Throbs with life upon a hostile frontier . . . touched with local color, lively with dialogue, bright with suspense."
—The New York Times
"Lana, the eighteen-year-old bride, and Gil had to fumble and struggle and reach their way to each other through misunderstandings and inharmonies of personality as all living husbands and wives must do. Her personal, intimate relations with her husband are not taken for granted, as in most books about 'history people.' And Mrs. McKlennar, the Trojan, the Amazon, the trump, is a marvelous character worth reading the book to know."
—Dorothy Canfield, Book-of-the-Month Club News --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
Here is the story of the forgotten pioneers of the Mohawk Valley during the Revolutionary War. Here Gilbert Martin and his young wife struggled and lived and hoped. Combating 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 has been an American classic since its original publication in 1936. This Syracuse University Press edition reprints the book in its entirety.
