About the author
William P. Robertson was born and raised in the wilds of Pennsylvania and has been an avid woodsman since his youth. He first read exploits of the eastern mountain men in the Ben Bowie comic books of the late 1950s. Soon, Bill was devouring all the Indian and pioneer biographies he found in Lincoln Elementary School in Braford, PA. Some of his favorite tales were of Dan Morgan, Davy Crockett, and Black Hawk, the Sac chief. He also begged his parents to buy him Paul I. Wellman's wonderful book, "Indian Wars and Warriors East." These stories, along with Bill's own hunting and fishing adventures, served as the inspiration for the Alleghenies novel series. The author is now having more fun as a French and Indian War reenactor. And, yes, Bill did wear a coonskin cap when he was a lad.
