The Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania is an area rich in history, none of which is more fascinating than in its origin. Settled not by the people of Pennsylvania, but rather of Connecticut due to conflicting land grants, it produced a titanic struggle between the Yankee settlers and Indians, British, Tories, and Pennamites, which stretched from the French and Indian War to well past the Revolutionary War. In these years many battles were fought, much blood was spilled; some say no area in America suffered more in proportion to population. Brother did turn against brother, and father did turn against son. Still, the settler stood fast, possessed by a spirit which in turn would conquer the American west. The Wyoming Valley did not sit on the fringes of the frontier but some sixty miles beyond it. These early pioneers carved out a settlement in the heart of a wilderness staunchly contested by people on all sides. Not only did they have to contend with the Indian threat, but with Pennsylvanians wishing to rid their northern borders of the Yankee intruders, and latter on when their firm support of the revolution became known, with the British Empire. Burned out, attacked from all sides, racked with betrayal from within their own numbers they stood fast in the face of impossible odds. Their spirit is a testament to the indomitable spirit of America. Their story is one of America. Read and discover within their struggle against the scalping knife and British Empire a great story, one that should never be forgotten, one that defines the American spirit.

I feel the book was well written, in a language level anyone could read. I feel it is one of the most unbiased books I have read about the American Revolution and it's effects on the country that became America.
  • Madi
A combination of historical based events and facts and a story line which brings in the everyday details of the lives of those at the time.
Colorful descriptions of the characters and area.
  • Dukinos
Was very nice to read about the history of the place that I grew up in. Well written. I am going to get the next book in the series.

This book is, unfortunately, loaded with mistakes! Chief among them - Lieutenant Elisha Scovell was NOT a Tory (British sympathizer). Tories did NOT return to their colonial homes after the Revolutionary War. They emigrated to Canada or back to England. Elisha Scovell returned to his birthplace (1734), Colchester, Connecticut for a time immediately after the war, but later went back to his farm on Scovell Island, Susquehanna River, near Exeter, Pennsylvania, where he died Oct 1797. An accurate accounting of Elisha Scovell's participation in the Revolutionary War can be found in:
Harvey, A.M., Oscar Jewell; Smith, Ernest Gray; A History of Wilkes-Barré - Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, Vol. II (Wilkes-Barré, Pennsylvania: Raeder Press, May 1909), pgs 857, 991, 993, 995-996 (https://books.google.com/books/about/A_History_of_Wilkes_Barr%C3%A9_Luzerne_Count.html?id=rEYVAAAAYAAJ). He's also mentioned in Vol. I (https://archive.org/details/historyofwilkesba01harv). Several of his descendants have been admitted to the Sons of the American Revolution based on their descendancy from Elisha Scovell. The SAR does NOT admit descendants of Tories. They only admit descendants of patriots.

for one such application. There are others.) Mr. Miller owes an apology to Elisha Scovell and his descendants.

Mr. Miller's command of the proper use of the English language is somewhat tenuous. There are a multitude of grammatical and "wrong word" mistakes, like:
he meant "taut" - not "taunt"
"to stretch the poles taunt"
"the greased paper stretched taunt"
"sharp tug pulled it taunt"
"his hands he pulled it taunt"
"around his neck stretched taunt"
"ropes going taunt"

he meant "tuft" - not "tuff"
"grabbed the tuff of hair"
"A lone tuff of greased black hair"
"the greasy tuff of hair"
"to name a few whom have not"

he should have used "who" - not "whom"
"never forget those whom came"
"what he expected from one whom held"
"from one whom holds a King's commission"
"mumble, especially Stewart, whom stood staring up"
"such work make way for those whom do not"
"terrible resolve again any whom would"
There were 71 more incorrect "whom"s. He only used "whom" correctly 18 times.

There were many other mistakes, but I think you get the idea. I quit reading when I got to the part about Elisha Scovell. My mother kept reading and said, "Reading it was an exercise in patience. I don't think I'll be reading the other two books." Unfortunately, we've already purchased them. We're afraid we might pull out more than a "tuff" of hair. It's unfortunate because Mr. Miller's is obviously familiar with the area and with the Revolutionary War era, but the Elisha Scovell material needs to be corrected and the book(s) need a good editor.

The overall information and detail gleaned from historical documents made this a good read. The story is told from various viewpoints, meaning Tories, Rebels and Indians.

Great book A+++++ really can't say enough. Living in Kingston Pa this book talks about the strugle for the wyoming valley that happened right here. It is a book that I could not put down and couldn't help but picture the events as they are written. Just a great book and a must have for any Revolutionary War library
