Pillar to Post: Odysseys in Revolutionary Americaby Samuel Willard Crompton
Horatio Hornblower and Charles Dickens unite in spirit to describe Revolutionary America. Indian wives and deceitful post riders create a dramatic
Two British travelers paint us a magnificent true portrait of Revolutionary America in Pillar to Post. In their journals, we see the good, bad and the ugly of Americans from Maine to Georgia and Virginia to Ohio.
Horatio Hornblower and Charles Dickens unite in spirit to describe Revolutionary America. Indian wives and deceitful post riders create a dramatic picture of America between the Boston Tea Party and the Saratoga campaign. Reads like a PBS drama!
Loss, death and destruction take their places alongside hope, courage and possibility. Between them, Hugh Finlay and Nicholas Cresswell may reshape our view of the American Revolution.
Postal riders gallop, colonial governors fret, British generals march and Indians orators dance across the stage created for us by these two men and their pens.
