              Man CAN fly! Man can FLY! MAN CAN FLY!!! To soar like a bird was unthinkable in the late 19th century. The Wright brothers were only 7 and 3 years old, when a relatively uneducated mountain man from Georgia decided that man could fly and he was determined to find the secret! Of c...ourse, his neighbors and on-lookers thought he was crazy... but that only fed fuel to the fire. This is his story. The story of a man driven by an idea; a man with a mission; a man with a vision. After all, he reasoned that if a man could float on water, he could also float on air. Despite the ridicule and mocking, Micajah Clark Dyer was a man determined. Determined to prove the nay-sayers wrong. A man, relatively unknown and unrecognized by the public even today, but a man who pursued his dreams. A man who achieved the impossible.

              BUSHWHACKER QUEEN HELL has no fury like a woman betrayed Big Tobe Kirkwood was king of the Southern bushwhackers in the Great Smoky Mountains, leading a ragtag army of killers and bandits armed with stolen Yankee repeating rifles.Hattie June Rose was his backwoods queen, Civil Wa...r guerilla royalty terrorizing the dark mountain region. She offered herself to gain Big Tobe's strength in avenging her father. Bloodier than QuantrillFast and lively and very bloody, Rebel Bushwhacker hits hard and aims for the head, like a smoking revolver in the hands of the wild-eyed bushwhacker chieftain. Based on true incidents during the War Between the States, the story takes place in the rugged Southern Appalachians where a deadly civil war raged between Rebel partisans and Union loyalists.It's the story of a survivor, a sturdy mountain girl named HATTIE JUNE ROSE, who found herself in desperate times during the last year of the Civil War in the remote Smoky Mountain backwoods. Guerillas fought a grim and shadowy war, with brazen raiding, murders, kidnapping and looting quite common.It's a tangled story of love and hate, of vengeance sought, of a clever country girl who uses her brains and her body to bend two different men to her will. She loses her innocence along the way, and at a tender age buries her father and her brother. She trades sex and her native intelligence to the most notorious bushwhacker of them all, the red-headed butcher, for his help in tracking down the Yankees who killed her father.Til the day her murderous lover betrayed her badly.Vengeful Hattie June Rose sets Big Tobe up for an ambush that goes badly. He flees to Texas and, after recovering from her wounds, she follows, determined to see his death - or her own.

              Killer bear, Appalachian psycho, Yankee gold . . . He's on the trail of something big . . . Deep in the Great Smokies, a huge black bear kills a child at a campground, and a hunt begins in a quiet mountain community where such threats are rare. Wade, an outdoorsman and backwoods ...columnist, is quickly deputized to find and slay the massive beast terrorizing tourists and locals alike. While on the trail, he is wounded by a pot-grower's booby trap and stalked by Junior, an authentic Appalachian psychopath. Two fellow deputies are gunned down, and rumors of buried Civil War gold surface. Wade gets unexpected assistance from a wannabe writer whose gifts prove helpful even after mushroom trances and spiritual quests-enhanced by a Minnesota Vikings horn-helmet. The discovery of a mysterious doll ties into grisly murders from the past, and Wade meets a tough, old Marine with a puzzling treasure map. All the while, the looming threat of Junior's lethal lunacy stalks Wade and his colorful allies.

              It's the trial of the century in a 1940's North Carolina town. Murder and vigilante justice. War hero and law student Wes Ross has to save his uncle-but hide the truth. Taught to shoot in the rough logging camps of the North Carolina swamps, Wes Ross remembers his lessons well. D...odging hostile gunfire with dozens of other young Marines, he storms a remote Pacific island as one of Carlson's Raiders in the first commando-style attack of World War II. He blasts several Japanese snipers from their palm-tree hideouts with buckshot before an enemy bullet sends him home. The Carolina homefront includes a new girlfriend and a new occupation, learning to be a rural lawyer in his uncle's law office, including courtroom intrigue and what goes on behind the scenes. Wes, like his uncles, is a good man, the kind who takes up for the poor and downtrodden, looking out for those who are easy prey for bullies. Frog Cutshaw is the storekeeper in the Caney Fork backwoods, a swaggering ex-moonshiner who is deadly with his ever-present .45 auto pistol. Frog's daylight rape of a married woman and the brutal killing of her husband bring on Bible Belt vigilante justice, an eye for an eye, a life for a life. Wally Avett is a retired newspaperman. He lives in North Carolina.
