Jimmy Carter brings to life the revolutionary war as it was fought in the deep south. It is a saga that will change the way we think about the conflict. He reminds us that much of the fight for independance took place in that region and it was a struggle of great and small battles and of terrible brutality, with neighbor turned against neighbor, the indians support sought by both sides and no quarter asked or given. The Hornet's nest follows a cast of characters and their loved ones on both sides of this violent conflict.

Jimmy Carter writes his first novel set in the Revolutionary War in the south. Strong characters and good story line.

Good read if interested in American Revolution and especially in southern view. Being from the north I hwas especially enthralled. A completely new prospective for this SAR member.

Well written and a surprise from Carter :-)

Carter's pedantic prose clearly show that he is more comfortable with non-fiction, yet this -- his first novel -- is strangely compelling and readable. I learned so much about the Revolutionary War in the South that I found myself reading late into the night, even though sometimes I felt like it was a textbook! Recommended.

President Jimmy Carter did a great service to Southern States in researching the information for this book. I found it very intersting to read about the American Revolution from their point of view and would be happy to share with someone. Babs

This book is for history buffs. If you are into other types of fiction it's not for you. Reading was dull and though I stuck it out to the end, I did not enjoy.

There were many interesting facts about that time in history. However, the book was too much like a recital of time lines and dates events occurred, rather than having the history woven into a plot. There was some plot and character development but no where near the writing quality of say a Vardis Fisher novel.

Out here on the West Coast, we do not live our lives surrounded by the battlefields of the Revolutionary War, as in the south where the author, Jimmy Carter lives. I was shocked by the realities of the war portrayed by the author in this fictionalized account. The burdens placed on families by marauding bands of soldiers was indeed difficult for them to bear. I will be listening to this Audio CD again.
