Title: Wild Drums Beat

Author: F. Van Wyck Mason




Wild Drums, Frontier Warfare



Here is a vivid adventure of the frontier in 1812 when a handful of Americans fought a second war for independence against the redcoats and their savage Indian allies. It is also a story of Greg Sheldon, renegade trapper unjustly accused of treason, and his passionate love for Stella, the dazzling toast of New York society.


WILD DRUMS BEAT tells how Greg

and Stella escaped the famous massacre at Frenchtown, Ohio, when an army of scalp-hungry redskins put every prisoner to death by tomahawk. We follow Sheldon on his daring raid against the British at Camlachie, and we stand shoulder to shoulder with the American crew of the Lawrence flying her famous ensign "Don't Give Up the Ship" over the bloodstained waters of Lake Erie. This is an exciting novel which shows how men's courage and a woman's love helped alter the course of American history.
