Western Hooves of Thunder: War of 1812 (2012)

About the Book

In 1800, on the Grand River Six Nations Territory, Ayewate, a Mohawk boy and Catherine, his settler friend, were born on the same day. The two children were of different backgrounds but enjoyed the best of both their cultures.

When the War of 1812 erupted, the children’s fathers, and many of their friends and neighbours, took up arms to defend their homes. Unexpectedly, in 1814, over 700 mounted American soldiers descended from the west and plundered their way to the banks of the Grand River.

During this attack, our young hero, Ayewate, takes on the role of a warrior out to save his friend Catherine.

The two characters are fictitious, but the historical content, including their names and Native references, is authentic and validated.
