Drums along the Mohawk, Walter D. Edmonds’ masterpiece, is not only the best historical novel about upstate New York since James Fenimore Cooper, it was also number one on the bestseller list for two years, only yielding to the epic Gone with the Wind.
This is the story of the forgotten pioneers of the Mohawk Valley during the Revolutionary War. Here Gilbert Martin and his young wife struggled and lived and hoped. Combating hardships almost too great to endure, they helped give to America a legend that still stirs the heart. In the midst of love and hate, life and death, danger and disaster, they stuck to the acres that were theirs and fought a war without ever quite understanding it. Drums along the Mohawk has been an American classic since its original publication in 1936.
“The best work of its kind. Throbs with life upon a hostile frontier…doubly thrilling as Mr. Edmonds sets it down, touched with local color, lively with dialogue, bright with suspense.”

Surprisingly engagingAugust 13, 2015I hesitated with this novel. It seemed like the type of story that I would find dull, but honestly it gripped me from the start and never let up. For an older novel it came across much more exciting than I expected. Mark Bramhall narrated this splendidly...Well done Blackstone!!!
