This is the first reprint in over 250 years of a young Scot's personal experiences of battle and captivity in the wilderness of North America during the French and Indian War. This small, obscure book was first published in Limerick, Ireland, 1775. Kirkwood's story constitutes a very rare voice-from-the-ranks account of the conflict, a remarkable chronicle by a private soldier of some of the sharpest woods fighting and skirmishing ever encountered by the British army. At a time when scholarly books and articles on colonial North America's 'backcountry' are emerging thick and fast, Through So Many Dangers offers a fresh and compelling voice from a man who experienced that violent and fascinating world first hand—and who, against all the odds, lived to tell the tale. The book is fully annotated and indexed.
