  • Excellent picture of history as it was

    I received a free electronic copy of this historical biography from Netgalley, Tom Clavin and Bob Drury, and St. Martin's Press. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read Blood and Treasure, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. St. Martin's Press is bringing us more exacting, more exciting histories and biographies than I have seen previously. Thank you again for sharing. This is a must-read for history lovers. This is a special, intimate look back in time that puts us right there, next to Daniel Boone as he works his way into the history of the United States. Whatever your historical interest, Blood and Treasure will catch your attention. This is not a story of coonskin hats and blunderbusses, but an intricate spotlight on life as it was in October 1773, beginning before our battles with England for independence, and carrying forward to the disastrous Battle of Blue Licks in August 1782. With Clavin and Drury, we go back to when the American West started at the peaks of the Alleghany Mountains and every inch of soil was paid for with blood and treasure.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Well done

    historical-figures, historical-places-events, historical-research, history-and-culture, colonial America, American Rev War, Native American, explorers, family-dynamics, facing-death, firearms, fraud, friendship, fur-trade I just gave up on giving this book the attention I wanted to give it and pre-ordered the audio version! This is nonfiction with mild embellishments. The facts are well researched but the embellishments are author comments and clarifications that make it so much more readable and memorable than a Charles River Editors thesis. It is so much more than a simple recounting of facts in a timeline fashion but a marginally fictionalized (read conversations) humanization of the people of the time. This is history at its finest in my book (sorry about the pun) warts and all. If you have time and attention to give the visual page, more power to you, I did not. But as I've said, I will simply have to wait until the more portable form is released. Well worth every penny! I requested and received a free temporary ebook from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley. Thank you!
