The settling of southern Kentucky and middle Tennessee from pre-Revolutionary times to the beginning of the nineteenth century is described in everyday detail by Harriette Arnow, the author of The Dollmaker. “It is the art of pioneering rather than the acts of individuals in the westward movement that gives backbone to this book,” wrote historian Thomas D. Clark in the New York Times Book Review. “The author takes her reader along the early trails, onto the land, into the cabins, and even into the private lives of the people.” Seedtime on the Cumberland won the 1961 Award of Merit from the American Association of State and Local History.

“This book will long stand as a classic picture of the frontier in middle and east Tennessee, a mine of information and a tribute to the makers of mid-America.”—Library Journal (Library Journal )
“Arnow’s own roots are in the Cumberland country and her personal approach adds to her careful study of the Cumberland from 1780 to 1803—the period of seedtime, when the first wave of settlers crossed the mountains of western Virginia and the Carolinas, into the wilderness that opened up the West.”—Christian Science Monitor (Christian Science Monitor )
“A work of great warmth and devotion, expertly done.”—Chicago Sunday Tribune (Chicago Sunday Tribune )
