Book Details

In the Land of Rob – a Serial Trilogy A Saga of the Blue Ridge Mountains

The Tale of a Woods Colt, the first book of the trilogy, portrays the rich culture of the Blue Ridge during the late 19th century, as it takes Rob Nickerson from his inauspicious origins to his adventures as a young illiterate mountain man trying to make his way in the Shenandoah Valley. This work of historical fiction is largely true as to the characters, places and events.


About the Author

G. Mason

The narrative and the spoken mountain dialect are drawn from the author's many years of living amongst the Blue Ridge mountain people and his two decades of close acquaintance with the real Old Man Rob.
