Isaac Shelby: A Driving Force in America’s Struggle for Independence, by S. Roger Keller
Shippensburg, Pa: Burd Street Press, 2000. Pp. xii, 120. Illus., maps, append., biblio., index. $12.95 paper. ISBN:1-57249-184-1.
A short biography of an interesting and largely forgotten American citizen-soldier, who commanded other citizen-soldiers at King’s Mountain during the Revolutionary War, and again later in Canada during the War of 1812. A useful book, although sometimes rather hyperbolic.
