About the Author

Daniel Doan, whose books about the White Mountains are premier guides, combines a woodsman's perceptions, a naturalist's eye, and a novelist's craft into a lyrical tale of settlers whose attempt at an impossible independence comes dangerously close to precipitating war between two nations.

Jere R. Daniell is Professor of History at Dartmouth College and author of Colonial New Hampshire (1981) and Experiment in Republicanism: New Hampshire Politics and the American Revolution, 1741 - 1794 (1970).

What People are Saying About This

Hugh Gregg

“Fifty-five years after General John Stark admonished his troops to 'live free or die,' the stalwart northern frontiersman of the Indian Stream Republic adopted their own constitution and declared their independence from both Great Britain and the United States. Doan's meticulous chronicle brings to life this dramatic episode of Granite State history.”

Howard Frank Mosher

“Scrupulously researched and beautifully written, this is a wonderful study of a little-known American frontier and the incomparable individualists who decided to establish and defend their own government there.”

Steve Taylor

“A fascinating account of how a few ornery, cussed farmers and woodsmen put together their own nation against a backdrop of raw politics, greed, and international controversy. It also captures the human side of subduing the forest, harnessing the streams, and battling the brutal winters, and gives us a valuable portrait of an obscure but intriguing piece of American history.”
