  • Description

Maryland - 1758. Britain and France are at war. In Europe, the war will become known as the seven-years war; in the frontier lands of the British-American colonies, it will be called the French and Indian war. Portlander, Jack Easton, is bound by the terms of his indentures to rendezvous with the Southern Maryland militia, which is already on its way northwards to join British and provincial armies marching on Fort Duquesne. His journey will take him into the mountainous wilderness of Pennsylvania, accompanied by a fellow militia scout, the German mercenary, Sergeant Schluntz. They are charged with the seemingly mundane duty of transporting supplies to the militia, but their encounters along Brigadier General Forbes' new military road to the forks of the Ohio will be anything but mundane.

The Road to Fort Duquesne imaginatively sets Jack Easton's continuing quest for retribution in the context of the developing hostilities between France and Britain in northeastern America. This makes it not only an exciting read, but also highly informative, yielding new insights into a conflict that helped to shape the future of America.
