"The best work of its kind. Throbs with life upon a hostile frontier ... doubly thrilling as Mr. Edmonds sets it down, touched with local color, lively with dialogue, bright with suspense". -- The New York Times
Drums Along the Mohawk is the most renowned work of Walter D. Edmonds. This legendary tale is a timeless look at the Mohawk Valley's forgotten pioneers during the Revolutionary War. Drums Along the Mohawk's intimate and historical portraits are as appealing today as when they were first published in 1936.

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.About the Author:
