Gingham-clad girls, twangy-speeched hillbillies, and lush green hollows among rugged mountains made Tennessee the natural birthplace of pioneers. But so rich was the countryside, so sweet the land, that carpetbaggers came to steal the farms of down-home folk, and scoundrels brought violence to the streets of sleepy Memphis town--until banjo pickers' songs gave way to the crack of rifles and the terror of women's screams.
I have almost a complete set of this series,20 books in all. They cov er a journey from Mississippi and Louisiana through 20 states to California and Oregon. Same principle characters until their deaths and then pick up with their children and grandchildren. Some mighty grand reading of western adventures.
