A hardworking tobacco farmer in the Carolina Uplands, Justin Harris wants only to provide for his family.

Through crushing setbacks and hard-won victories, Justin’s perseverance serves as a gift to his descendants.
Great historical fiction can bring history to life in a way that is very difficult to accomplish in a classroom lecture, and the Tales From a Revolution books are acclaimed both for their historical accuracy and their rich storytelling.
