“You may hunt a good many histories of America through and not find a reference to [Dunmore’s War] yet it was one of the most important of the Indian efforts to prevent the whites’ advance beyond the Ohio. As in all the works of this author, the story is historically correct. . . . Pendexter took nothing for granted.”— The Lewiston Journal ---------------------------------------------------------- 1774 . . . Blood spoils the solitude throughout the Ohio Valley . . . An ongoing series of attacks has forced Lord Dunmore to declare a state of war between the British colonists and the hostile Shawnee Nation. The settlers rally with flintlock and tomahawk, trying to protect both themselves and their hard-won lands, as the violence escalates into a fever pitch. Now the powder has been touched off when a handful of settlers discover that the Native Americans are but one of their hidden enemies along the frontier . . . With an introduction by Troy D. Smith, PhD., Spur Award and Peacemaker Award winning author and historian. This edition is authorized by the Hugh Pendexter Literary Trust.
