The Land Breakers

The Land Breakers

John Ehle


Set deep within the Appalachian barren region among the years of 1779 and 1784, The Land Breakers is a saga just like the Norse sagas or the e-book of Genesis, a narrative of first and final issues, of the violence of delivery and loss of life, of inescapable sacrifice and the faltering emergence of community. 

Mooney and Imy Wright, twenty-one, former indentured servants, lengthy habituated to backbreaking paintings yet now not lengthy married, are touring west. they come in a no-account cost in North Carolina and, on impulse, half with all their rate reductions to obtain a patch of land excessive within the mountains. With a bit cattle and a handful of crude instruments, they input the mountain world—one of transcendent good looks and vicious necessity—and start to make an international in their own.

Mooney and Imy are the 1st to confront an unsettled kingdom that's occasionally paradise and occasionally hell. they're going to quickly be through others. 

John Ehle is a grasp of the yank language. He has an ear for discussion and one eye on nature and a clutch of personality that experience established The Land Breakers as one of many nice fictional reckonings with the making of America.
