When newlyweds Gilbert and Lana Martin settle in the Mohawk Valley in 1776, they work tirelessly against the elements to build a new life. But even as they clear land and till soil to establish their farm, the shots of the Revolutionary War become a rallying cry for both the loyalists and the patriots. Soon, Gil and Lana see their neighbors choose sides against each otherâas British and Iroquois forces storm the valley, targeting anyone who supports the revolution.
Â Â Â Â Originally published in 1936, this classic novel was a bestseller for two yearsâsecond only to Gone with the Windâand was adapted into a motion picture in 1939. Now, some three-quarters of a century later, Drums Along the Mohawk stands as a brilliant account of the majesty of the New York frontier, the timeless rhythms that shape a marriage, and the battles of a revolution that would change the world.

Foreword by Diana Gabaldon
