Overview

Early pioneers on the American frontier, are armed with self-reliance, courage, and daring-just like North Carolinian, Abraham Rallemore. He learns at the Battle of New Orleans that the mettle of a man is what he does, not the color of his skin; fights the slave system on his tobacco plantation; confronts dangers traveling west; and is stunned as a nation is ripped apart by civil war. He struggles with the evils of slavery and the many dangers that crisscross his lifelong path-tornadoes, Indians, cutthroats, wildfire, and Hooker, the slaver. Whetting his appetite for new adventures is Big Jen, a frontiersman scout for General Andrew Jackson and the first white man to settle in southern Missouri in the land called Six Bulls.

Meet the Author

The Carolinian is the second novel in the four-book, Six Bulls series.

The author says, "From research and personal accounts, it has been a privilege to weave together an anthology of American westward expansion in the 1800s, from North Carolina to Ohio and Indiana, southwest to Missouri, across the plains, over the Rocky
Mountains, and finally to California, Oregon, and Washington."

I marvel at the spirit of early pioneers who settled the American frontiers. They had perseverance, overcame many fears and self-doubts, and were, of necessity, self-reliant. They have my greatest admiration, and it is an honor to incorporate some of their experiences and family tales in all the novels, including this one.

From my research, I have a better understanding of the plight of Native Americans, as westward expansion occurred. Despite being fierce and resourceful, ultimately they were swept aside by the oncoming tide of settlers. There came a time for understanding and compassion by the conquering invaders. In too many instances, this did not occur, and that stain is part of our American historical legacy.
