The Whiskey Rebels by David Liss
The Whiskey Rebels

donmar, December 8, 2008

I've read some of the reviews on other websites. An important reviewer mentioned that Liss's depiction of the Western Pennsylvania frontier and also his focus (or lack thereof) on the actual Whiskey Rebellion fell short. I definitely agree, having grown up in that area, and having ancestors who were early settlers to Pittsburgh. I thought the characters were stereotypes and that the action, particularly once the settlers left Philadelphia, bordered on melodrama.
