From the Back Cover:

From America's earliest days, the South has produced some of the most intriguing and notable figures in the nation's history. That the state of Tennessee has contributed its full share of such men and women is artfully revealed in the stories which comprise "Frontier Tales of Tennessee".

These tales do not tell of bear hunts or frontier brawls. Instead, author Louise Littleton Davis has gone behind the historical scenes to trace the personal tragedies and triumphs that shaped the destinies of people struggling to build a young nation and that influenced the course of history itself. Such an influence was the disastrous first marriage of Sam Houston, who might never have left Tennessee to help forge Texas had he found wedded bliss in his home state.

About the Author:

An award-winning writer of historical features for the Nashville Tennessean for more than 20 years, Louise Littleton Davis is a former vice-president of the Tennessee Historical Society and currently serves on the board of editorial advisers of the Tennessean Historical Quarterly.
