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.

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

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 :-)
