WAYFARING LAD

Pioneering in the Tennessee country was harsh living. Orphaned Richard Nolan did poorly in the colony of Watauga and when some cows disappeared and a fire, was found, Richard was sent out of the colony to find his way along the Wilderness road. A wastrel and a coward, young Richard is redeemed through fascinating adventures among the Chickamaugas and Cherokees, the hostile French, the good and bad people of the road, of every tribe and town. A rounded story of a boy who grows from indolence and indifference to courage, independence and generosity through real relationships with kindly people of all kinds. The Indians here are not so fantastic a race of trappers as sometimes shown; there are fools and scoundrels, hard-working honest men and women everywhere. Good story- good adventure.
