Robert Kirkwood served with the 42nd and 77th Highland Regiments in North America during the French and Indian War and Pontiac's Rebellion. From Niagara Falls, to Newfoundland, from the Carolinas to the Mississippi, he covered some five thousand miles by foot, canoe, whaleboat, and transport ship. By the time he returned home after ten years of " service truly critical," our roguish hero had not only been captured by the Shawnee Indians but had become an accomplished marksman, hunter, and tracker proficient in the use of canoes, snowshoes, and tumplines. In short, Kirkwood was the ultimate Light Infantryman of Britain'sAmerican Army,"and his Memoirs,reprinted here for the first time since 1775, bring his exciting story to life.
