Jim R. Woolard

Thunder in the Valley

Falsely accused of trading with the Ohio Indians, Matthan Hannar barely escaped the hangman’s noose. He ran for his life through the treacherous river valley. He eluded scalpers. He endured the harsh wilderness. And he survived. Now, for the sake of a woman, he was going back... where the noose was waiting for him.

“Woolard is an impressive writer... meticulous attention to detail, time, place and good old fashioned storytelling.”
--Cameron Judd, author of The Overmountain Men and Timber Creek.
