(From the publisher):
As a child, Joshua Colter traveled across the Appalachian Mountains from South Carolina to the wild and beautiful Tennessee wilderness. There the orphaned boy grew into manhood and survived the dangers of a frontier torn by bloodshed and conflict, becoming one of the legendary long hunters. When the colonists must defend themselves from the Chickamaugas and Cherokees on one front and from the mighty army of the British Crown on another, Colter joins the newly formed patriot rangers and quickly ascends to a captaincy.
The second volume in the Tennessee Frontier Trilogy, The Border Men is an adventure saga set in the turbulent period from 1778 to 1783. Cameron Judd paints numerous portraits of the unforgettable men and women whose pioneer spirit prepares them for the historic battle of King's Mountain, where they fight for liberty in a decisive stand against the British army. Following the war, the pioneers continue to expand their settlements beyond the mountains even farther into the Tanisi region.
