King's Mountain by Sharyn McCrumb
Part of her popular Appalachian historical novels in the Ballad series, Sharyn McCrumb takes us back to the American Revolution.
"King's Mountain (Sept. New York: St. Martin’s Press) tells the story of the Revolutionary War battle that changed the course of the war. Told from the points of view of Patriot leader John Sevier and Tory camp follower Virginia Sal, the novel brings to life the people and events in the southern front of the Revolution—a story largely ignored by the history books.
