(From the publisher):
In Green Centuries, Caroline Gordon addresses man's relationship with nature through Orion Outlaw's journey with his wife and companions from North Carolina to a new life on the Tennessee frontier. The novel is a tragedy, tracing the brutalization of the white settlers of the Appalachian frontier through their encounter with the wilderness and the Cherokee nation, culminating in the destruction of the Indians and the moral corruption of their conquerers.
