Red Belts tells the story of pioneers who settled along the western Appalachians. They are left to defend themselves when North Carolina gives the territory to the federal government to satisfy the state's crippling Revolutionary War debt. Some, like the hero John Sevier, argue they make a pre-emptive attack against the Cherokees and Creeks if necessary. Others, such as Major Tonpit and his supporters, argue they should leave the United States and align themselves with Spain, which is actively seeking U.S. territory. Plenty of chases, double-crosses and shootouts for action fans, but diplomats won't be disappointed, either.
