    Simon Girty Turncoat Hero

    After years of anticipation, Phillip Hoffman¿s book ¿Simon Girty Turncoat Hero¿ has finally made it to press and into my hands. Phillip Hoffman has spent 19 years in meticulous research and turned it into a fascinating, and probably the truest account of one of the most 'misunderstood' historical figures on the American frontier, Simon Girty. Mr. Hoffman gives us great insight into the British, American, and Indian politics, Simon¿s contemporaries, and life and war on the frontier. Mr. Hoffman¿s adept writing skills have taken a much vilified and hated individual and given us another side of Simon¿s complicated personality a side of Simon Girty that other writers either ignored or never understood. As an amateur genealogist, researching the Girty name including my fourth-great grandfather, Simon Girty, I have had numerous occasions to research Girty papers and have read most of the major works that have been written about Simon. I always came away feeling that no one knew the true Simon Girty until Mr. Hoffman came along. Now the Girty family and frontier enthusiasts probably have the most accurate account of Simon Girty and the role he played on the American frontier. I know there are many American Revolution and frontier enthusiasts, having met them at the frontier reunions, who will enjoy reading this book and adding it to their collections. Stephanie Thalman Simon Girty¿s fourth great granddaughter
