The first in a trilogy set in the untamed colonial American wilderness, from “a keen observer of the human heart as well as a fine action writer” (Publishers Weekly). Joshua Colter was born of the wild frontier. As a young boy living with his family on the edges of civilization during the French and Indian War, he witnessed firsthand the bloodshed and brutality men were capable of—from the deception and depredations of whites like his own vile father to the merciless vengeance of the native tribes. Forced by cruel fate to set out on his own, he was adopted by an honorable hunter who taught him to fight and survive while remaining true to his own heart. But as much as the solitary Joshua loves living rough and free in the forests and mountains, the troubles of the civilized world are encroaching, as the once-pristine wilderness is being carved up between the all-powerful British crown, settlers searching for a land to call their own, and the native Indians who desperately defy them both to protect their ancestral home. Now, in a burgeoning land of hope and hardship, Joshua will have to decide what he is willing to fight and die for as the birth of a new nation breaks on the horizon.

The author of The Overmountain Men and The Canebreak Men continues his Tennessee Frontier Trilogy as the American Revolution rages in the wilderness. Two years after the colonies declare their independence, the American and British armies fight a seemingly endless series of bloody battles in the east. But on the Tennessee frontier, the war is fought by far fewer rules of engagement. In the wilderness, those who strike silent and swift win the day, every tree or rocky hill might hide an enemy waiting with bullet and blade, and a painless death is a rare gift. It is in this chaotic land that frontiersman Joshua Colter leads the newly formed Patriot Rangers militia against both the hated British and their Cherokee and Chickamauga allies. The war has already cost all sides a great deal in blood and betrayal. But for Joshua, the war is about to bring the pain of his own past into the conflict as old enemies return to exact their revenge . . .

THE CANEBREAK MEN is a powerful saga from acclaimed frontier storyteller Cameron Judd, capturing the vision, the hopes, the heartache and the triumphs of the men and women who fought to forge a new nation in the wilderness. Following the American War for Independence from the British Crown, a group of Tennessee settlers is on a mission to carve out a new state as well as a new society within the fledgling nation. But this vision of a new Eden is fraught with adversity, as the federal government tries to centralize the newly-united states and the Chickamauga Indians object to the settlers’ incursions into their territory. In this untamed land, men and women test their strength and face an uncertain future.

A celebrated soldier, admired politician and founding father of the state of Tennessee, John Sevier led an adventurous life. He commanded a frontier militia into battle against British Loyalists at Kings Mountain. He waged a relentless war against the Cherokees in his effort to claim America's first frontier. He forged the state of Franklin from the western lands of North Carolina and later became Tennessee's first governor. Following his death, Sevier's accomplishments faded from public memory, but years later, writers resurrected his image through romanticized accounts of his exploits, relying heavily on folk tales and recollections from aging pioneers. Thus, life and legend intertwined. Join authors Gordon T. Belt and Traci Nichols-Belt as they examine John Sevier's extraordinary life through the lens of history and memory, shedding new light on this remarkable Tennessee figure.

When the East Tennessee and Virginia Railway line was completed in 1858, dignitaries gathered in celebration as the final spike was hammered into the last tie in Greene County. Opening new doors of growth and economic development in the area, the railroad that proved such a peacetime boon would be-come a point of conflict only three years later. When the Civil War began, the line became a vital link in transporting Confederate troops and supplies from the deeper South into Virginia. The railroad was vulnerable, however; and East Tennesseans had voted more than two to one against secession. With so many hostile Unionists in the region, Confederate authorities were understandably worried about the rail lines and how to protect them. Inevitably the stage was set and on a cold Friday night, November 8, 1861, the Unionists proceeded with plans to burn the key railroad bridges of East Tennessee. How-ever, the promised Federal invasion did not come. From the "Prelude to Conspiracy" and a bold plan approved by President Abraham Lincoln, through the tragedy described in the "Aftermath," all of the peo-ple involved and all of the events are covered in de-tail. Written by a nationally known author of historical novels, this thoroughly researched, easy-to-read narrative tells the incredible true story of insurrection gone wrong.

Als im Jahr 2000 selbst das internationale Fernsehen auf die Mönche im Westen von Irland aufmerksam macht, die noch immer die Messe auf lateinisch lesen und damit ungewollt Zulauf aus allen Ländern finden, sendet Rom einen jungen Geistlichen, einen Vertreter der aufgeschlossenen Theologie, zum Kloster aus, um autoritär nach dem Rechten zu sehen und die neue, liberalisierte Ordnung durchzusetzen.
