He had everything in his favor: good Virginia lineage, a respected position as county judge, a fine stable of horses, and the love of vivacious Jeannie Dare, a merchants daughter. Then he met the Stewarts. To Colin, Ling Stewart represented all that was good and appealing about the Blue Ridge mountains bordering the Virginia plantations, which had always mysteriously beckoned him to their midst.

Ling was crude but manly—a natural huntsman with ethics shaped to mountain living, and inevitable he became Colins stanch friend. As for Lings wife, Anne, she was the ideal woman, sensitive and loyal... and it was strange how she almost eclipsed Jeannies image in Colins heart.While the friendship flourished, rumors of war between the states grew heady and forbidding.... The war, of course, would change everything. Although Colin abhorred the bloodshed that would stain his countrys soil, he did what was expected of a Southern gentleman: he took up arms, choosing to lead the Blue Ridge men.Following the great popular success of his first historical novel, The Lost Wagon, Jim Kjelgaard has presented another colorful picture of a stirring scene in American history.
