Overview

A New Historical Fiction Series From an Exciting New Team!

When Aaron McCarver met Gilbert Morris at the CBA convention in 1991, he never dreamed that those initial discussions would ultimately lead to his conceiving a historical fiction series that he would write with Gilbert Morris. THE SPRIT OF APPALACHIA chronicles the story of the settlers of America's first frontier--the lands over the Appalachian mountains--and of faith that carried them through the harshest of times.

Over the Misty Mountains is the story of Hawk Spencer, a man whose bitterness over the loss of his wife drives him from his home in Virginia and causes him to seek the frontier to escape his pain. Becoming a skilled trapper, Hawk is persuaded to lead a wagon train over the mountains before the snows come, but the trail is marked by sabotage from an old enemy of Hawk's.

When renegade Indians attack the wagon train and leave Elizabeth MacNeal and her children without a husband, how will Hawk respond to Elizabeth's resilient faith in God? And how will the MacNeals survive the frontier settlement.

Meet the Author

Gilbert Morris spent ten years as a pastor before becoming Professor of English at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas and earning a Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas. During the summers of 1984 and 1985, he did postgraduate work at the University of London. A prolific writer, he has had over 25 scholarly articles and 200 poems published in various periodicals, and over the past years has had more than 180 novels published, including the House of Winslow series, Lions of Judah series, and Cheney Duvall, M.D. His family includes three grown children, and he and his wife live in Alabama.
Aaron McCarver teaches drama and Christian literature at Wesley College in Florence, Mississippi. His deep interest in Christian fiction and broad knowledge of the Christian market have given him the background for editorial consultation with all the "writing Morrises" as well as other novelists. It was through his editorial relationship with Gilbert Morris that The Spirit of Appalachia series came to life.

    Hawk In The Misty Mountains

    The Cherokee Indians gave him his name ¿Hawk.¿ He had lost his wife and set out to Tennessee where the Cherokees found him. They nursed him to health and he lived with them learning their ways. He guides a wagon train west and meets Elizabeth. The story could have moved faster and the unexpected is always nice. Ruth Thompson author of ¿The Bluegrass Dream¿ and ¿Natchez Above The River¿
