Item description for The Overmountain Men: A Novel (The Tennessee Frontier Trilogy #1) by Cameron Judd...
Overview The Cherokee called it Tanisi, a land rich in game, beauty and resources. Joshua Colter called it home. Born in Charles Town in Carolina and baptised in the horror of an Indian massacre, Joshua became one of the legendary long hunters and crossed the mountain range that for many years had protected Indian lands from the Atlantic Coast settlements. There he became a reluctant leader in the bitter struggle between the Cherokee nation and the white settlers, and between the settlers and the British crown. The first volume in the Tennessee Frontier series, The Overmountain Men is a saga of adventure in the period from 1757 to 1777. Cameron Judd paints a picture of the pioneering spirit of the men and women who moved west as homesteaders and traders and also of the courage of the Indians who fought to keep their lands.

Tennessee Wilderness Apr 21, 2008
This is an interesting story of the frontier life in Tennessee. The protagonist Joshua Colter finds himself alone in the wilderness. Here Judd weaves his story of these brave long hunters in the Cherokee land of Tennessee. You will find that Judd makes you feel that you are there with Joshua. It is a good read. By Ruth Thompson author of "The Bluegrass Dream" and "Natchez Above The River"
Suprisingly Good Read Jun 10, 2001
Saw this book on a shelf and was interested by the subject. But once I got started reading I couldnt quit. I felt as if I were on the Tennesse frontier with Joshua Colter. I am definetly buying the other two books in the triology. I would strongly recommed this book to anyone interested in American history, especially the colonial period.
Best book on Tennessee history I've read Sep 8, 2000
This novel is so entertaining!! Cameron Judd uses a great cast of fictional characters to convey the history of the settling of Tennessee as well as backing it up with factual characters, places, and events. I recommend this book to anyone who hated history as a child, but has become an avid reader in old age, like me!
