John Sevier had not taken much interest in the American Revolution; he was too busy fighting Indians in the Carolinas and taming the wilderness. But when an arrogant British officer threatens his settlement, the war becomes personal. That officer is the charmingly antagonistic Patrick Ferguson, whose mission is to recruit wealthy Southern planters to the British cause - and who along the way finds himself a devoted lover to a Tory washerwoman.
The British aristocrat on a fine, white horse becomes the antihero to Sevier’s American pioneer spirit, as Sevier raises a volunteer militia of more than one thousand men. When the two sides clash, these Overmountain Men triumph in a battle that Thomas Jefferson would later call the turning point of the American Revolutionary War.
An elegant saga crafted with heart and depth, replete with harrowing battle descriptions and gripping family histories, King’s Mountain celebrates one of Appalachia’s finest hours, as McCrumb once again shares history and legend like no one else.
