From the author of the thrillers Cibola and Dourado, this novella is David Wood's first foray into historical fiction. Set against the backdrop of colonial America, Into the Woods is the story of pioneer and patriot Jonathan Wood. Straining against the bonds of Tidewater society, and tempted by an ancient legend, Jonathan’s sense of adventure leads him “Over the Mountains” of southwest Virginia. Perils abound for this brave pioneer, who must face threats from the native tribes, the British, and even more sinister enemies, while fighting for the woman he loves and the land that will not let go of his heart. Based on a true story,
Into the Woods is a tale of adventure, danger, love, loss, and the triumph of the human spirit.
Terry Ervin, author of Flank Hawk, says, “David Wood has crafted a gem of a story laced with action, villainy, revenge and reconciliation."
"Into the Woods is an amazing historical adventure, and a compelling testament to the power of family."--Sean Ellis, author of The Shroud of Heaven
