At the turn of the 20th century, Winston Churchill was the most popular novelist in the United States, the J.K. Rowling of his day--his second novel, Richard Carvel, sold a phenomenal two million copies, and his extraordinary fame forced the British Winston Churchill--the future prime minister whom we associate with the name today--to use his middle name to avoid confusion with his American counterpart.
This 1904 novel is considered by many to be Churchill's best, a sweeping historical romance of the settling of the Kentucky frontier during the American Revolution. Meticulously researched, it features appearances by such legendary names as George Rogers Clark, Simon Kenton, and Daniel Boone.
A century after it was written, Churchill's sensitive and poetic prose continues to bring the era and its players alive for readers today.About the Author :
Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) has been called by historians "the man of the twentieth century." Prime Minister of Great Britain (1940-1945), Churchill won the Nobel prize for literature in 1953.
