Drums Along the Mohawk book . Edmonds’s demi-classic of the American frontier has a distinct, old-fashioned feel. Set in New York’s Mohawk Valley during the Revolutionary War, Drums Along the Mohawk tells a fictionalized version of a real-life struggle between American settlers, their Loyalist peers, and the Indians. As settings go, this one ain't bad. The valley was a bloody and morally-complicated swath of land, where neighbor was often pitted against neighbor.

An easy read that gives a sense of devastation of the Revolutionary War on the New York frontier. Stalin is supposed to have said that a single death is a tragedy, a million deaths a statistic. So when Richard Berleth in "Bloody Mohawk" whites: "Refugees returning to the Mohawk Valley in the period between 1783 and 1784 found hardly a barn or house standing from Fonda to German Flats." he gives us the statistics, Edmonds provides the tragedy. Chronicled are Gilbert & Lanna (Magdelana) Martin, newlyweds, and their lives through the war. Their homestead is in Deerfield, a community consisting of a handful of settlers near the end of white settlement on the Mohawk River. Their isolation invites an early raid that burns the homes and barns and displaces the entire community to a slightly more secure fort down river. History tends to teach the Revolutionary War as a series of strategic events, however on the frontier the guerilla war was a constant struggle, often fought between former neighbors. Although the Martins and their neighbors are fictional the events closely follow history as do the names, and personalities of leaders. If you are interested in the history of this period I don't think you will be disappointed.

Historically, this book is right on. I never like reading about battles and military strategy, but I have a feeling the accounts are historically accurate to a detail. Some of the language is even archaic enough that I had to use my dictionary, and some of the words weren't in the dictionary at all. The story line is not the best element of the book, but the life of the sometime soldier/sometime pioneer farmers and their wives is what kept me reading. The depiction of the Indians of this area and time would be nothing short of politically incorrect, but probably accurate? The eloquent descriptions of revolutionary, wild New York state countryside, survival in the wilderness, and early pioneer farm life are the best thing about it. Aside from skimming the battle discussions, I really enjoyed this book.

I have grown up watching the movie made from this wonderful book, starring Henry Fonda, Claudette Colbert, Ward Bond to name a few. I never knew what a wonderfully engaging and emotion filled story it came from. What you never get to see in the movie, though it is still one of my favorites, is the real depth of passion Gil and Lana have for each other, though the film makes an admirable attempt at it. Some of the characters you thought you knew will surprise you...including Gil and Lana. It's a book I know I will read again with as much enjoyment as I did this first time.

Great novel that includes vivid picture of life in a very ignored period of American History, the revolutionary war in the remote Mohawk Valley of New York. Edmonds carefully researched every aspect of the way of life using original sources. The result is a very absorbing story that is authentic and believable. While picturing very effectively the American patriots living on the frontier and left to defend against the British and their native American allies, he manages to cover the positions of those on both sides of the question. His characters are all richly drawn and engaging. This deserves to be considered a classic.

Life on the frontier during the Revolutionary War was full of danger. The brave settlers had to be resourceful and independent since they were isolated from the regular soldiers of the Continental Army. They had to develop a system of alerting each other to the dangers of attack from the British and their Indian allies. Leaving their homes and seeking shelter in the closest fort was the only way to survive even though they had to constantly rebuild their properties. The movie follows the book very well and describes the dangerous situations in which the characters find themselves in detail.

This is a classic that never grows old. If you want to understand what frontier life in upper New York state during the Revolutionary War was like, this is your book. There were no safe spaces in this world. Exciting, fast paced read that you can't put down. The everyday person in this environment was a hero.

This is an outstanding book based on historical accounts around the Revolutionary War's battles for the upper Mohawk Valley (now New York State). This includes the Battle of Oriskany which was probably the bloodiest battle of the war. The author has done an excellent job of bring the historical characters to life - in explaining how they lived, their struggles and their battle to stay alive in a hostile environment. I wish this book was required reading for our teenagers in NYS so they would know more about the history of their state. BTW - the book came long before the movie.
The dictionary couldn't help with some of the terms in this book, but the feeling of the times came through loud and clear. What an incredible view of the hardships the early settlers experienced, without giving in.
