Eighteenth century Colonial America is a place of enormous opportunities and countless hazards. Commerce follows the rivers. European nations struggle for advantage. Native Americans feel squeezed in lands they have inhabited for centuries. This is a time when George Washington is proud to wear the red coat of a British officer, and Benjamin Franklin is a Philadelphia newspaper publisher. Elias Knepp—a young man, who works for Moravian missionaries but isn’t certain he can join their church. Stands-often—a Munsee boy, who is destined to come of age in a time of war. Zack Miller and Thomas Shirby—immigrants, who leave Philadelphia and find trouble in the Juniata River Valley. Decker, VanAken, Westfall, Van Etten—Dutch families, who have lived in the Minisink Valley for generations and will fight to remain. Heinrich Feagley and Ezekiel Graber—German farmers of the Perkiomen Valley, who seize a fleeting business opportunity to rent wagons to the British army. Beletje Davids and Jacob Fegley—two young people, who form a troubled friendship, which could develop, if they live long enough. Jacque Ravelette—a young Frenchman, who longs for a return to Post Vincennes on the far away Ouabache River. Bloody Scalps and Cuckoo Clocks is a story of making difficult choices in a time of war. Hyndshaw’s Fort, Cole’s Fort, Dupui’s Trading Post, Harris’s Ferry, become legendary in the defense of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This unique American story chronicles important world events as experienced by frontier families who struggle to survive and make sense of it all.
