Drums of the Dark Forest is an entertaining yarn that takes place in western Pennsylvania during Pontiac’s War. Ed Stowers does an excellent job recreating the summer of 1763 between the French and Indian Wars and the American Revolution. He describes the frontier with its brutality and the life-changing hazards that accompanied the warfare between settlers and the Indian tribes who resisted the invasion of their territory.
