GREEN CENTURIES by Carolina Gordon


Email this review


The new Tennessee frontier in the days when the Indians were on the warpath, and where they were making their last stand, east of the Mississippi, against the invading whites. A realistic tale of two brothers, one who was forced, because of the part he played in an early effort to combat the role of the British tax collectors, to flec from his home towards the opening west; the other who ran away, was captured by the Indians, and became an Indian brave. Not an historical novel -- though briefly Daniel Deone crosses the scene, and the situations were similar to those all along the frontier. But a story of men and women who thrust a white man's civilization into an Indian setting. Unusually full picture of Indian (Cherokee) life -- a moving love story --good adventure. This has the widest appeal of anything she has written.
