THE BOOK IS ONE IN A SERIES OF 5. THE BOOK TELLS THE STORY OF THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR AND THE SETTLEMENT OF UPSTATE NEW YORK. IT ALSO GIVES A DETAILED STORY OF THE STRUGGLES OF THE INDIANS, AND HOW THEY TREATED PRISONERS IN THE HARSH WINTERS OF NEW YORK. THE STORY WAS VERY MUCH AN EYE OPENER WITH DETAILS I NEVER HEARD ABOUT? THE BOOK IS VERY EXCITING TO READ AND YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN? DO NOT GET THE WRONG IDEA, TO BE FAIR THE BOOK READS LIKE A NOVEL, NOT A HISTORY BOOK. THE AUTHOR DID ALOT OF RESEARCH IN WRITING THE BOOK AND DOCUMENTED ALL THE EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE. IF YOU ENJOY A BOOK THAT WILL HOLD YOUR INTREST AND AMAZE YOU WITH DETAILS YOU WERE NOT AWARE OF THEN THIS IS FOR YOU. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED! A+++++

By far, one of the premier novels based on actual events surrounding the life of Sir William Johnson and the Mohawk Indians during the French and Indian War

I have read most (if not all) of Mr. Eckert's books. He brought to light historical men and women for me that I had never read about -- and I was a history teacher back when we really taught history. This record of the French and Indian War was interesting and really challenges the readers imagination. All Americans should learn the early history of our nation. Mr. Eckert leads his readers into the time without prejudice to justice or injustice. He states the facts as they are recorded and does this in a narrative that is an exciting novel. I recommend this book and all of Mr. Eckert's novels to anyone who enjoys history and historical fiction.
