Product Description

Product Description

Alex Mackenzie was a Scottish lad born in 1754 in the Scottish lowlands on the border between Scotland and England. Alex, his father, and his two older brothers were members of the last band of Reivers (outlaws) that operated along the border. A few years before the start of the American Revolutionary War, Alex ran afoul of the British authorities; they were on his trail and wanted him dead. His only alternative was to leave Scotland for Ireland and then from there, sail to America. The colonies in America were supposed to be a place where people could get a new start in life and explore new opportunities. America was supposed to be a place where people could put down stakes and put old feuds behind them, or was it?

“Och, that tears it; it’s all gang agley” said Alex’s father. “Ye are going to hae to set aff from Scotland for a wee bit, Alex, laddie.”
“Where should I go?”
“Ireland,” said John. “Ye can find wark at the Plantation of Ulster and get back on yer feet there. Ye might hae t’ stay in Ireland quite a spell until this all blows oer.”
“How am I going to get there?”
“Weel,” Hugh chimed in, “the distance from Scotland to Ireland is less than fourteen miles at the closest point, we can probably swim o’er there, just like swimming across a loch,” said Hugh with a grin and a gleam in his eye.
“We,” said Alex. “Who invited you along?”
“Ye don’t think Robber and I would let ye go o’er the Sheuch alane, do ye, laddie?” replied Hugh.

HASH(0x9b6fe9cc) out of 5 stars Good story Aug. 30 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed the tale of Alex and his brothers. They were engaging, strong, intelligent and despite the fact they were Reivers, very likable. The author wove real life events into their story upon arrival to the new colonies of America.

The descriptions were very thorough and at times you could nearly feel like you were running through the forest with Native Americans on your tail.

I found the war descriptions got old really fast and found myself skimming over the movements of the troops to get to the meat of the story. Other than that, this was good background as to how they lived during this period of time.

HASH(0x9b6fec18) out of 5 stars Well written and very entertaining. Aug. 10 2013

The historical references are cleverly woven into this novel. The hardships and obstacles that our fore fathers (and mothers) faced during the birth of our nation is truly captured. Surviving the voyage to the colonies was no easy task. These patriots then had to face hostile Indians, British soldiers, loyalists , mercenaries, disease, hunger, brutally cold winters, and blistering hot summers.

I experienced two emotions reading The Kings Pinnacle. First I felt pride, I am very proud to live in a country that is founded on the principles of freedom and liberty for all men. Sorrow, I felt that these founding principles of our nation have been diluted over the past 250 years. A majority of our citizens have no idea how fortunate they are to live free and the price the patriots paid to rid of us of tyrants that suppressed or denied our freedoms.

HASH(0x9b6febdc) out of 5 stars A Superior Work of Art April 27 2014
By Joseph Gaut - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I thought it stayed close to the important historical facts. The Battle of King's Mountain was far more important to the revolution than many Americans realize. It bolstered the determination of the ragtag and nearly defeated Continental Army to fight on. It helped the British to realize how fruitless its military intervention had become. Overall, very well done!

HASH(0x9b6feed0) out of 5 stars A really fun book! I hope there is a second in the near future! Sept. 22 2013

This book was very entertaining and informative about history and what life was like in the early days of our country. The action never stopped, and the main characters were always in motion towards their next big adventure. It was enjoyable to learn so many details about how people lived and what events influenced their lives back in the revolutionary days.
