First e-book read, downloaded free from Googlebooks. Originally published in 1835 this inspired romance, set in South Carolina during the conflict for American independence was widely read in antebellum years and has many qualities which make its popularity understandable: lots of vivid action, superbly wrought scenes of conflict, effective melodrama, noble characters, nefarious characters, comic characters and many insightful and uplifting authorial observations. Simms possessed immense patriotism and talent and does not deserve to be ignored just because he was on the losing side of the Civil War. The version I read is full of typographical errors but I discovered that the first 20 chapters have been posted on Wikipedia and seem to be error free.
