GIRTY

 
       
  by Richard Taylor with an introduction by frontier historian Ted Franklin Belue.
$15.00  
     
 

Girty by Richard TaylorGrowing up on the frontier in western Pennsylvania, Simon Girty (1741-1818) was captured by the Indians and lived several years among the Senecas. Eventually fighting for the British and Indians, Simon Girty was a fierce warrior and ally of the native tribes, particularly the Shawnee and the Wyandots.

An able frontiersman, as were Simon Kenton and Daniel Boone, and an acquaintance of both, his bloody exploits and legend made Girty the most hated and feared villain in Kentucky and the Ohio Valley. However, many who knew the man respected him for his convictions, principles, and bravery. As prefaced by the author, “this book, is an attempt in fiction to reconstruct the life of Simon Girty, perhaps the most hated man in American history during much of the nineteenth century.”

2006, illus., 6” x 9”, paperback, 150 pages, $15.00.
