Crittenden: A Kentucky Story of Love and War
A profound, almost primal adoration for his native state of Kentucky resonates throughout the novels and stories of acclaimed writer John Fox Jr. In the late 1800s, the journalist traveled to Cuba to cover the Spanish-American war for Harper's Weekly. Based on his experiences there, he wrote the novel Crittenden, linking his love for Kentucky with topical world events. The end result is a must-read for historical fiction fans.
