Description
Information
Lidie and her abolitionist husband join the pioneering westward migration into America's heartland in the middle of the last century. Together with their family and friends, they find themselves caught amidst two great American forces. Vicious arguments about freeing slaves, political shenanigans and peacocking encounters over claims to land are about to erupt into the bloodiest war the world has yet to see - the American Civil War.

Against this chaotic background, 'The All-True Travels And Adventures Of Lidie Newton' soars across the vista of the birth of the modern United States of America. This classic American novel shows, through the eyes of one remarkable woman, how shattering, tragic and resilient the history of that land is.
