"When the thirteen colonies of America went to war for their independence, there were many colonists who declared for their King, George III. This is the story of one such group - the fierce and reviled Butler's Rangers, a Loyalist regiment which, from a base at Niagara, fought a series of courageous and bitter campaigns during the American Revolution, 1776 to 1783, for the King and for their homes in the State of New York. It is also the story of young Daniel Springer, of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., whose father was killed by the rebels early in the war. Daniel joined the Rangers and through his experiences we follow some of the most savage battles of the Revolution and meet the Loyalists who fought with courage and gallantry for their beliefs - staunch old Colonel John Butler, commander of the regiment; his dashing, ill-fated son, Captain Walter; Peter Ten Broeck, who declared for the King while his brother declared for the rebels; Joseph Brant, war chief of the Mohawks; 'Indian' Allen, hard-bitten frontiersman; and the Rangers' Indian allies, the Senecas, Mohawks, and Cayugas who were members of the Six Nations. Here is history that was also high adventure, sought and sustained by men of strong ideals." A fictionalized version written for the younger reader. A few center page leaves with corner creases and a few with light stains in margins, large corner crease on title page, large gift inscription on dedication page, tiny corner bumps to boards, light soiling to fore-edge of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, book is slightly cocked, very light edge wear.
