This is a story of pioneers crossing the Cumberlands -- one of the most impassible mountain chains in the U. S. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER II A NEW CREED THE young man who had been dismissed from his father's house walked unmindful of the rain still falling in the evening gloom, nor looked back to the door now closed behind him. His face, strong and deeply lined, now had settled into a sternness which belied the half-humorous expression it but now had borne. He was wide of chest, broad of shoulder, straight of limb as he walked now, hands in pockets, straightforward, not slouching down, his back flat.

This edition of the book contains three original illustrations, rejuvenated, and seven additional pioneer illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.

Emerson Hough (1857–1923) was an American author best known for writing western stories and historical novels.

Hough was born in Newton, Iowa on June 28, 1857. He moved to White Oaks, New Mexico, practiced law there, and wrote for the White Oaks newspaper Golden Era for a year and a half, returning to Iowa when his mother was ill. He later wrote a novel, "Story of the Outlaw," a study of the western desperado, which included profiles of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. Hough moved to New Mexico after Garrett shot Billy the Kid, and he became a friend of Garrett.
