The Last of the Mohicans. We, the publishers agree. There has never been such a fulfilling tale of the colonial frontier. Arrowmaker leaves a reader satisfied. Things come out the way they should, and in these days of confused and irresolute writing that alone is gratifying.Arrowmaker is filled with exploring, building and fighting. The story is based on facts including actual incidents that occurred in the areas depicted. If a reader chose, he could go to the land described and walk the ground while recognizing the physical features written about.Arrowmaker is replete with the danger and violence of the times, but the warring is believable and much of it really happened.Readers develop a unique empathy with the frontiersman, Rob Shatto, and when finished each reader will have gained a new friend that he will cherish as if Robs great wilderness home had been just down the road. In this volume you will meet frontiersmen and Indians who reappear in succeeding books of this frontier series, but you must read Arrowmaker first. It is the soul-the heart-of all that comes after, and believe us, you will wait with impatience the coming of the next book and each thereafter. We know it is so because we (including the author) have experienced it. The adventure is heady, and we highly recommend it.
