David Rimer and I have just completed our new French and Indian War novel, AMBUSH IN THE ALLEGHENIES, and have sent it off to the publisher. This adventure is set in the primordial wilderness of colonial Pennsylvania. It details the exploits of Lightnin' Jack Hawkins, Bearbite Bob Winslow, Will Big Cat Cutler, and Alexander MacDonald, four freewheeling mountain men struggling to survive their savage environment. Dangers lurked everywhere here in the form of ferocious cougars, scalp-stealing savages, and white water rivers of immense fury. The woodsmen's worst nemesis, though, was Bold Wolf, the vicious Ottawa chief who brutally murdered Cutler's father and wanted to kill all the English like one pigeon. If that failed, the ruthless villain was more than willing to torture his enemies in the gauntlet or burn them at the stake. It was only through Bold Wof's demise that Cutler could achieve inner peace. But would the resourceful lad be brave enough to meet the challenge when his cruel foe ambushed him in the dense hemlocks of the Alleghenies? AMBUSH IN THE ALLEGHENIES will be released later this summer by Infinity Publishing. Stay tuned for more updates.
