Simon Girty Turncoat Hero


by Phillip W. Hoffman


Simon Girty Turncoat HeroAuthor Phillip Hoffman spent 17 years studying every detail of Girty’s life and times, amassing more than 4,000 computer windows of research. By exploring microfilm, ledgers, military records, congressional records, newspaper and magazine articles, and dozens of early American and Canadian fiction and nonfiction works, Hoffman was able to peel away the mythic legend that has hidden Girty’s real persona for two and a half centuries. Hoffman’s dedication to detail, combined with his superb talent as a storyteller, brings you an intimate view of the full sweep of early American frontier conflicts, as experienced by a devoted adventurer whose heart was as much Indian as it was white.

Paperback, 2008, 400 pages, index and appendix including extensive genealogy of the Girty family. $24.95.
