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.

First time I rated it:
I bought this for a gift. I was shocked that it was not available in hardback at the time.
I first read it as a teenager, about 50 years ago. and have reread it several times . The author is the best historical novelist I've ever read and is highly regarded by historians . His history is accurate, which is very important to me, and I always found his books to be the "I can't put it down" type. Before this I bought it for my grandson. This particular purchase, Oct. 2019,is for a friend ; this book was printed in 1935, is in hardback, and is not in the best
condition, but still I am glad to have found any copy at all. The 5 stars is for the content, not the condition of the book. The service was satisfactory.

I first read this book about 30 or 40 years ago. It was a battered second-hand copy which unfortunately did not last that long, as being one of the best books I'd ever read it finally got even more battered. Its spine cracked and all the pages began falling out with some becoming irretrievably lost. Only recently, having discovered the benefits of buying online, have I finally been able to buy a replacement.
There were two books which were published about the sane time. Drums Along The Mohawk and Gone With The Wind. Each book was received with great acclaim by the public of that time but of the two, Drums Along The Mohawk was considered the greatest and was the also the most popular. So why is the lesser of the two now fondly remembered as a classic and the other all but forgotten? The reason is Hollywood. Both were made into films but while one was given the lavish, epic treatment, told in its entirety, The Drums was instead made into a standard western film of the time, with great swathes of its content cut to fit into what was considered the required length for a western. A great shame.
