“In searching for my roots, I found out I am related to some of the young men involved in the kidnapping of Timothy Pickering in Pennsylvania in 1788. The kidnappers escaped prosecution by fleeing to upstate New York, where my ancestor John Earl was born in 1795. As I looked more closely at this incident, I discovered a true American tale, which seemed to me to need telling. It covers the time frame from approximately 1750 to 1800, including the Yankee-Pennamite wars in Pennsylvania, the American Revolution, and Sullivan’s march to destroy the Haudenosaunee. Along the way I found many stories of heroism and some humorous anecdotes as well. It is a truly astonishing story, with lessons for today.”
