E-BOOKS: WILDERNESS ROAD!

E-BOOKS: WILDERNESS ROAD!

JAMES REASONER

KINDLE EDITION ~ $2.99

HERE’S THE WORD FROM JAMES ON HIS ROUGH EDGES BLOG:

My novel The Wilderness Road, originally published by Harper Paperbacks, is a frontier historical set in Kentucky in 1790. Despite this, the cover of the Harper edition features a cowboy who's a dead ringer for Charles Bronson in Once Upon A Time In The West carrying a Winchester. Of course, who am I to argue, since it sold the best of the eight books I wrote for Harper. It's nice to have it available again, since I always thought it was one of my best books.

THE WILDERNESS ROAD

The country was young for a farmer named Davis Hallam. In 1790, a hard life grew unendurable when he was accused of killing his wife. Forced into the life of a fugitive, he fled his home and family and signed on to a crew that was widening the legendary Wilderness Road that would run from southwestern Virginia, across the mountains, and into the hinterlands of Kentucky.

For a while Davis managed to lose himself in the back-breaking labor, even finding love and adventure along the way, but in the end, he would be forced to confront the past and tie together the loose ends of the life he had let fall along the Wilderness Road.
