About this Item

This is a brand new signed first edition. Based on extensive research, Blacksnake's Path combines a compelling narrative with authentic history. This splendid novel about an unsung hero of American history is the product of twelve years of research and writing, yet it carries its prodigious learning lightly in order to tell vividly the story of William Wells's remarkable life and recreate an entire period (1779-1812). "William Heath's story of the life of William Wells rescues from obscurity one of the most dramatic episodes in the long struggle for control of the North American continent. Heath ably combines the craft of the novelist with the deep research of the historian to make Blacksnake's Path as informative as it is enjoyable," Andrew Cayton. "Blacksnake's Path is one of the best books, perhaps the best book that describes the earliest, wild and bloody days of the American Midwest," Jerry Crimmins. "With his encyclopedic grasp of the era and the territory, William Heath takes the reader back to the frontier Ohio Valley in the midst of its bloodiest war. As scenic and action-packed as the best adventure novel, Blacksnake's Path is a rousing, brutal use of American history," Stewart O'Nan. Bookseller Inventory # 000268
