I recommend this novel. Slavery is the underlying antagonist in this story. It is told through the eyes of Abraham, from his maturation during the Battle of New Orleans, to running his tobacco plantation in North Carolina, pioneer-first in Indiana, then Missouri, and lastly in his friendship for Andres. Throughout, the slaver Hooker tangles with Abraham. Yet, it is Big Jen, General Jackson's scout, who instructs Abraham that "God doesn't care the color of a man's skin; it's inside him where you find the mettle of a man." The story ranges over the initial battle, to conceiving a new way to provide workers for his tobacco fields that doesn't rely on slave labor, to the pioneering bug to go west. Indiana provides the settling for encountering Indians and that chapter and the last are as heartfelt as any I have read. This writer does capture your emotions and takes you along on Abraham's near half-century tale.
