Award-winning, Clay County-raised author Charles Price produced, from 1996 to 2003, a priceless epic of the Hiwassee Valley, starting with the Civil War novel, Hiwassee, and concluding, three volumes later, with Where the Water-Dogs Laughed, a logging era portrayal. “Priceless” isn’t just the right word on all counts, for Price pours himself into his work with an uncompromisingly realistic and yet humanistic worldview. There’s a lot of Price in them.
With his new novel, Nor the Battle to the Strong: A Novel of the American Revolution in the South, Price has reached an apotheosis. The book is a masterwork, a showpiece of historical authenticity, and a highly personal testament.
