Book Title: Flintlock and Tomahawk: New England in King Philip's War

Author: Douglas Edward Leach

Book Description:

I have always had a love for history and regularly read books on various periods and themes. My favorite area by far is the military history of colonial America. I spent my grade school years in New Hampshire, and fondly remember field trips to colonial sites and aimless wanderings in the woods, daydreaming about what great events might have transpired among those very trees in years past. I first read Douglas Edward Leach's work when in graduate school for library science. I credit Leach's book not with rekindling my interest in colonial American history, which had never faltered, but with helping me to determine exactly which facets I found most intriguing.
