"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". -- The New York Times

Drums Along the Mohawk is the most renowned work of Walter D. Edmonds. This legendary tale is a timeless look at the Mohawk Valley's forgotten pioneers during the Revolutionary War.

square-faced man, with solid wrists and a deliberate way of talking. He stood before the feather, breathing loudly through his nose, for quite a while, before he turned to Lana and Gil. “A man could hardly paint a thing like that,” he said, pointing to the heart-shape in the eye. He shook his head. “No, sir, not hardly. You’ve married yourself quite a girl, Gil.” His slow, good-humored eyes fixed themselves on Lana with respect. “Would you mind showing that thing to John and Cobus sometime,

All people were warned to enter the forts. The militia at Stone Arabia were to stand before the ravaging army. General Robert Van Rensselaer was bringing the Albany militia up the valley to take him in the rear. Bellinger sent orders to the detail at McKlennar’s. It was at once to proceed to Ellis’s Mills at the falls and reënforce the garrison there.

He had hardly felt the cold as he crouched down behind the windbreak Joe had constructed. It seemed to him that his whole being was filled with what Mary had told him that morning about being sure that she was going to have a baby. He thought he would never forget her; she acted so proud. “Do you think I should tell your mother, John?”

did find Demooth’s oxen and one of Weaver’s yoke and drove them back on the slow march home. They ate at Wolff’s store. Of Mrs. Wolff there was no sign. The building, as well as Thompson’s house, was deserted. Footprints showed that Caldwell’s party had come so far.
