Flint Bluff, which has received high praise from its readers, is an extraordinary saga following three generations in the lives of several families as they settle a frontier community along the Mississippi River in the upper Midwest.
In his second historical fiction novel, James Duermeyer, author of Heroes in Obscurity, Market Time Conspiracy, and The Bastard Trail, creates a colorful tapestry of the period of 1833 to 1900 in which the American frontier became a magnet, drawing individuals to the vast lands of the newly opened Louisiana Purchase. You will meet European immigrants, Native Americans, and African Americans as they all make their way in this new community. Based on historical events of the era, this richly detailed story follows key figures of two families as they grow and face tremendous challenges, including Indian attacks, outlaws, and the growing pains of the frontier town, participation in the siege of Vicksburg during the Civil War, as well as both love stories and strained family dynamics.
The author skillfully incorporates events of humor, character-building, pathos, love, war, crime, and spirituality in this exciting, entertaining, and informative read that you are sure to enjoy.
