Overview

"Oral history has played a major part in the creation of human cultures the world over. It played an especially important role in the heritage of the Celtic peoples--a people who placed high value on personal honesty but were never hesitant to improve a story, just a little, for the dramatic impact, while leaving the essential truth untarnished."

--James Ronald Kennedy, from "About the Truth in Uncle Seth's Stories"

In his first foray into historical fiction, James Ronald Kennedy crafts a compelling collection of tales of Southern independence and the Federalist assault on states' rights during the War of Northern Aggression. Kennedy uses the "everyman" character of Uncle Seth to represent the courageous and rugged individualists who combined the best of the Scotch-Irish, German, and other fiercely independent peoples who found refuge in the South because of racial or religious persecution. Uncle Seth's stories focus on the Southern determination to be left alone by the federal government and their strong commitment to community, God, and family. The atrocities he chronicles as part of his tales to the youngsters around him provide an insight into the horrors of subjugation and anti-Christian behaviors of Northern invaders while giving a hint at what the future might hold if individuals do not fight for their rights and freedoms.
