The Trail of the Lonesome Pine

Front Cover
The Floating Press, Oct 1, 2012 - Fiction - 321 pages
2 Reviews
One of the most important novels of the early twentieth century, John Fox Jr.'s The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is a sweeping historical epic that is much more than the sum of its many parts. At once a simple love story and a social history of the cultural forces that shaped the south, this novel is a must-read for those who like engaging historical fiction with heft and significance. If you like The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, be sure to read the next two volumes in the trilogy, The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come and The Heart of the Hills.
