Elkhorn Tavern (Google eBook)
From Douglas C. Jones, an author the Los Angeles Times called "a superb storyteller and authentic chronicler of the American West," comes a classic Civil War novel, long out of print but considered one of the great titles of the genre. With her husband gone east to fight for the Confederate Army, Ora Hasford is left alone to tend to her Arkansas farm and protect her two teenage children, Calpurnia and Roman. But only a short distance away, in the shadow of Pea Ridge, a storm is gathering. In a clash to decide control over the western front, two opposing armies prepare for a brutal, inevitable battle. Beset by soldiers, bushwhackers, and jayhawkers, the Hasfords' home stands unprotected in what will soon be one of the worst battlegrounds in the West.

Civil War, Northwest Arkansas. Battle of Elkhorn Tavern, Pea Ridge, Arkansas. A well-researched, well written fictional account of events of the time in my home state. Jones was effective in weaving an interesting tale around a deadly and ferocious battle. I liked this book. Read full review
