Book One: REVENGE
On October 28, 1862, the Hoopers break into the
house of the Watson family and kill three men, injure and resultantly kill one teenage girl, and rape another young woman. Nine-year-old Nathe Watson is a witness to this western North Carolina Mountain massacre, but escapes through a window to get help at the urging of his mother. When he returns, it is to find the heads of the men atop pike poles on display in his front yard.
Sent by his mother to live in Tennessee with a cousin, Nathe changes his last name to Milsaps for protection and stays there until he reaches the age of twenty. He returns to the mountains, burdened with the desire for revenge.
Nathe keeps away from most residents of Rich Mountain but one, known only as Amps, seems to know too much and offer unwanted advice on things that pertain to Nathe…things he thought no one knew.
There is an unknown fact about Addie
Laugh, cry, and work through the need for REVENGE with these true-to-life Appalachian mountain families.
