From the Publisher's Note: Armed with the eighteen-foot bullwhips that earned them the name of Crackers, the men on the Florida frontier wrestled their livelihoods from the wild scrub and marshlands where they had settled their families. Eben Bramlett was one of the many drafted into the Cow Cavalry that had run cattle for the Confederacy's food supply during the Civil War. Now that the war is over and he is free to make his own way, he faces not only the wilderness but also a land that has become poverty stricken because of the war. The cattle in the scrub are still plentiful. Eben Bramlett's dream is to drive them down along the Kissimmee River to the southern coast. His twelve year old son Josh, also expert with both horse and bullwhip, is his partner. Together they assemble a small company to begin the four-month trip to Punta Rassa. In spite of rustlers, outlaws, and wolves ahead on the trail, they mount up and ride out. The Bramletts face the dangers and difficulties on the trail with more than just their bullwhips or Eben's shotgun. For them, relying on the Lord through the hard times is a way of life. Designed for middle school and junior high school children, Brave the Wild Trail is a book of high adventure sure to capture the reader's imagination.Always! Free Standard Shipping in USA!

More Description

Florida after the Civil War was one long stretch of wilderness. Men had to struggle to feed and protect their families. Armed with the eighteen-foot bullwhips that earned them the name of "Crackers," these men lived by hunting small game. A great lesson in courage.
