    1. I had never heard of James Boyd or his 1925 novel Drums until listening to historian David McCullough's speech, The Course of Human Events, wherein McCullough cited Drums as a historical novel he'd read as a child and helped inspire him to become a historian. That was enough for me to give it a look myself.Drums starts out set in North Carolina and features Johnny Fraser as the main character. Johnny is the son of a well-to-do Scottish immigrant with expectations of becoming a gentleman and drea [...]


    2. (Note: I read the 1925 first printing, not the modern edition. I cannot speak for it, either for or against.)This was very nearly an excellent example of what a three-star book should be.The American Revolution isn't a time period touched on with great frequency in fiction and Drums, as the story of the backwoods-raised son of a deposed Scottish gentryman and his education on the coast of North Carolina as political tensions rise, does a great deal right. Rather than a tale of adventure in warti [...]


    3. Another reviewer notes that the disdain for everyone who is not a white North Carolinian casts a shadow over the book, with the worst being the profoundly racist view of African-Americans.


    4. A coming-of-age story set in the lead-up to and years of the American Revolution. The son of a backwoods North Carolina squire heads to a port town to get his Latin, (some) Greek, mathematics and such from a tutor. He learns how to dress, talk, and entertain himself in a manner befitting his class from the other young gentlemen. Young Johnny Fraser wishes the brewing conflict would go away so he can assume the role of genteel, landed American he is entitled to by his birth. He flees to England. [...]


    5. I'm so glad I found this book on so I could give it a rating. This book plagued my fifth grade reading. I took my AR test over it and did poorly and my teacher wouldn't let me move on from it until I got a better score. Which meant rereading it. Ew.I now like Revolutionary War fiction and historical accounts but if I were to revisit this book, I bet it would be awful.


    6. This book is one of my favorite books regarding history. It does start out slow but definitely increases in pace later on and has a very good story along the way. I would definitely recommend this book, but being only in 8th grade I can say that it was challenging to understand.


    7. A very good novel about the Revolutionary War as seen by a young North Carolinian with Scottish heritage. Because we have an ancestor with this background, it was particularly engaging.
