War in the Colonies

by William Robertson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

WAR IN THE COLONIES includes eight stories of grit, glory, and redemption set during the French & Indian War and the American Revolution. The book relives those turbulent years when freedom was won with spilled blood and black powder. John Stark, Dan Morgan, and the Overmountain Men are just some of the heroes you'll meet in this action-packed work of historical fiction.

The American frontier was a brutal place to live in colonial times. It took years of backbreaking work to carve a farm out of the wilderness only to have it incinerated in the next Indian attack. First, the French provoked the Ottawas, Shawnees, and Delawares against the colonists. Then, Chief Pontiac led an uprising that obliterated white forts and settlements throughout the Great Lakes region. The American Revolution brought a menace of another kind. Tories like Bloody Ban Tarleton and the murderous Butlers burned and pillaged until Patriots with longrifles rose against them. WAR IN THE COLONIES relives those turbulent years when freedom was won with spilled blood and black powder. John Stark, Dan Morgan, and the Overmountain Men are just some of the heroes who shine in these eight stories of grit, glory, and redemption. Accounts of the First Battle on Snowshoes, Bushy Run, Bunker Hill, Bennington, Saratoga, Cherry Valley, King's Mountain, and Cowpens are packed with historically accurate details that make the reader feel like he was there.
About the author
William P. Robertson was born in 1950 in Bradford, Pennsylvania. While attending Lincoln Elementary School, he devoured any book he could find about colonial America. He especially loved reading the biographies of Daniel Boone, Dan Morgan, and George Washington. Later, he became fascinated with historical fiction and read many books by Kenneth Roberts. The author's love of the 1700's led him to write three Alleghenies novels about French and Indian War battles that occurred in Northwestern Pennsylvania. All told, Robertson has penned over forty books that he hopes will preserve his area's heritage. When Bill isn't absorbed in his work, he enjoys trout fishing and listening to 70's rock & roll.
