About the Author

The author is a friend of long standing whose knowledge of adventure, woodcraft, folkways, firearms and edged weapons I much admire. Now, I learn, he can also tell a story and spin a very interesting yarn. His storyline is set in a time in early American history and illustrates what was best in our character as a new nation. That is, head-on, forthright, directness and honesty so lacking in recent history.

Having spent a great deal of time as a special warfare operator surviving in some of the toughest and nastiest spots on the planet, I have a special appreciation of the author's grasp of the skills and mental toughness required to survive in hostile situations when all odds are against a good outcome.

This is an excellent and most of all, entertaining and authentic story. My congratulations to the author. I'm looking forward to his next tale.

This is the first part of the story......I enjoyed it and read the follow up to this but I want more! I recommend this book.....makes you trully respect the time periid and why for most normal people at the time the fight was about freedom and protecting their family.
