Red Coat Brigade

  Author:   Vernon Oickle    
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing

On a warm, beautiful sunny day in June 1782, the women and young children of the village of Chester come together to defend their still-fledgling settlement against the invading and much more well-armed Americans. Armed only with their cunning and imagination, this rag-tag group of settlers pushed back the marauding intruders without the loss of a single life. In this fictional account of those events, veteran author Vernon Oickle weaves facts and legend to tell a story that has become part of Nova Scotia’s heritage and folklore.

GRIPPING
“Vernon Oickle brings to life the treacherous privateering and divided loyalties that marked America’s Revolutionary War as it spilled over onto Nova Scotia’s shores. Red Coat is a gripping tale from start to finish, a must read.”
—Glenna Jenkins, author of Somewhere I Belong

 

THRILLER
“This is an historical thriller of the first order. It is a page turner . . . a book you simply won’t be able to put down.”
— Robert Hirtle,  journalist
