Overview

This book tells two stories simultaneously. The first is about the search to find the ancestry of one man, the mysterious Andrew Fox who first appeared in Culpeper County, VA, in 1772 and then in Greene County, TN, in 1786. That search traces his lineage back to the 1600s.

Even readers with no kinship to Andrew Fox will find the second story quite interesting: that is the illumination of the places and events in which Andrew grew. That scene begins overseas several hundred years ago. It was in that impoverished environment that Andrew made a misstep; it resulted in his arrival in America in 1772. In America, Andrew was almost literally born again. You will cheer as he befriends the kind and resourceful Jacob Broyles, and a courageous young woman named Sarah Render.

As Andrew migrates deeper into the frontier, you will meet some notable pioneers: Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton and an angry Cherokee War Chief named Dragging Canoe. You will learn some things about crime and punishment in Colonial days, travel by wagons and flatboats, frontier land acquisition, religion, slave ownership and the white man's interactions with Indians.

This book invites you on a journey; come along and travel back to the American frontier. There is something to be learned: Andrew and Sarah will teach us about second chances, and the uplifting spiritual gifts of freedom and forgiveness.
