OTHNEIL JONES

A farmer, a superb woodsman and an over-doting son is Othneil Jones, a man of Revolutionary War America who lives in the fear that his half-white, half Cherkoee blood runs in ruinous confluence against him. This seems borns out when his mother dies and Neil, in blind vengeance, kills a Cherokee cousin responsible for it. But the subsequent journey to the Carolina low country and enlistment with rebel raiders, leads him to Sally, who proves his salvation; and the discovery of Cornwallis' where -abouts helps him to give information of vital importance. A novel that shows intimate knowledge of the area and a respectful admiration for its people.
