3. Crooked Lake Review: The Life and Times of Ebenezer Allan by Donovan A. Shilling. There are many stories written in the world of fiction that are absolutely incredible. Certainly, no tale however tall, can match the real-life escapades of the pioneer rogue, blood brother in the Senecas, notorious guerrilla warrior and irascible lover, Ebenezer "Indian" Allan. The tale becomes bizarre. (Submitted on April 5, 2012, by PaulwC3 of Northern, Virginia.)
