Against the backdrop of the harsh and unforgiving American frontier, Abraham Kent seeks to build a life and identity of his own


Continuing the saga of the Kent family, John Jakes turns his masterful eye to the settlement of the untamed American West.

But life on the nation’s frontier soon becomes more than their fledgling family can endure. Furthering his reign as the living master of American historical fiction, Jakes unfurls the epic of The Seekers.

    The Rise, The Fall, The Survival of The Kent Grandchildren

    The Seekers is the third book in the Kent Family Chronicles and perhaps the first one that helps identify the courage and bravery of early Americans. I felt a stronger emotional tie with this third novel than I did the first two. To understand our American Heritage the John Jakes' Kent Family Chronicles is a must read. Although these novels were written over 20 years ago they are excellent and recommended reading.
