The Plot for the Book is Great! May 7, 2002
Though the terrible war for Independence is over in the colonies, now the United States, the war in Nathanael "Fox" Carter's life is just beginning.
Just after the war, Fox and his mother, Awinita, get news that a family member was killed in the last battle of the war. Soon tragedy strikes and Fox inherits a plantation. But will greed overcome his uncle Naaman who's furious because Fox inherited the plantation. Fox and his mother fear for their lives so they escape over the Misty Mountains.
Hannah Spencer soon befriends Fox. Fox gets to explore his Indian side of his ancestry. He meets the Indians Akando and Adahy and they teach him the ways of the Indian. Little does he know his mother and Akando have a past together. Sequatchie also becomes a big part of Fox's life.
Fox soon becomes unsure of his feelings for Hannah and not knowingly is really in competition for her with another man. All the while Fox struggles with his faith and heritage. Little does Fox know that both sides of his heritage have plans for him and they may not be good.
Will Watauga ever become a state? Will Fox choose the right path for himself?
This is a wonderful edition to the Spirit of Appalachia series. Fox was a wonderful character to bring into the series. Fox made the plot twist and turn with the people he brought into the plot with him. Well the plot was wonderful and I strongly suggest the book.
Full of history and romance! Jul 26, 2000
These books are of the typical Gilbert Morris genre. Admit it, we all pretty much know what will happen in the end. Don't get me wrong though, it's a fun read. I love U.S. history. Somehow though when I'm reading out of the history book, only faint dusty pictures come to mind. Not with this series! Famous historical figures like Daniel Boone and the Little Carpenter take on a life and a magic of their own. Gilbert Morris manages to give these people a good dusting! Makes me kind of lonely though. I seriously doubt that there is my own Hawk, Jacob, Andrew, or Seth out there. Guess I'll have to wait and see...I recommend you read this series. It puts new light on age old things!
EXCELLENT Apr 24, 2000
One of the things that I love best about Gilbert Morris are his historical settings. I love American History and enjoy the fictional stories that revolve around fact. This book was not as satisfying as his other books in the series, but it was still very good and enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Another winner in a long series of successes! Mar 29, 2000
Once again, Gilbert Morris has done it! With a strong ability to weave in history with the story line, this novel moves you through an important time in the history of the United States. I enjoyed the way in which faith played an important part within the main characters lives. I found the story line very plausible, and was able to be transported back to feel as if I were there witnessing the happenings. Once again, the characters were developed very fully. As an avid reader of Morris' books, I found this one to be similar to his other successes, and as always look forward to his next one.
