Summary
"In 1808 Boone Fawley decided there was more to life than he could find in St. Louis, Missouri. Spurred on by tales of land ownership on a frontier flowing with milk and honey, he headed south into the hardwood jungle of Arkansas with his sons John and Questor, his wife Molly, and Chorine, his temperamental, old-maid sister. He went out looking for adventure and prosperity, but if he'd known what lay ahead, Boone might have stayed put. The Fawleys' trek from St. Louis into the Ozarks rekindles the pioneer spirit that led men and women into the heart of a new continent."--Back cover
