Brady’s Rangers: Frontier Defenders is a work of historical fiction from the American Revolution, penned by author David Ekardt. At a time when the British fought against the settlers along the borders of Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Ohio, Samuel Brady was a legendary figure supporting those settlers in their bid for freedom. When Indian tribes side with the British and capture settlers, Brady makes the incredible decision to master the art of disguise and infiltrate the Indian encampments to rescue those who were taken. He and his band of protectors sport the sense of true heroism in the face of danger, and their exploits and mentality are explored thoroughly during the events of this novelization of real history.

It is clear from the early pages and introduction of this novel that author David Ekardt has completed extensive research on his subject. Fans of historical non-fiction will find this element highly enjoyable in his novelization of real events, but it may fall a little on the heavy side for fans of dynamic fiction from the Revolution period. That said, superb attention to detail is paid to the life and times of Sam as he struggles against the Brittish and the Indians to defy the odds and protect the people to whom he has sworn his allegiance. The action sequences are well narrated, the dialogue is authentic to the period, and the exploration of the nature of Brady’s chivalry and bravery is well thought-out. All of this makes Brady’s Rangers: Frontier Defenders an in-depth action novel brought forth from real history.

Fathers Day present. Loved it and plan to reread it several times. I know some of the history of Samuel Brady and the author hit all the bases telling his story. . It would make a great movie but may not be PC in today's world. My ancestor Thomas Kyle served under Brady and were buddies throughout the ARW. Must have been exciting being a spy and scout.
Thomas earned a pension of $40 dollars a month for his efforts and lived to be an old man. Good reading
