Summary
First published fifty years ago in 1964 to great acclaim, The Land Breakers is John Ehle's best-known work of historical fiction, chronicling the hard-won settlement of southern Appalachia. A cinematic saga spanning the Revolutionary War years of 1779 to 1784, The Land Breakers recounts the challenges, setbacks, and small triumphs of the defiant men and women who were drawn to the wilderness of provincial North Carolina. Eager for opportunity in a land where the easy country had been claimed, Ehle's characters stake their lives on the settlement of the unnamed high mountain territory
