The story of a frontier riflemaker's son during the American Revolution.
Kin's father was a gunsmith in the Carolina Blue Ridge, and Kin knew more about long hunters and Indians than he did about the war with England.
But British and Tory raiders taught Kin and his father that freedom was worth fighting for. They joined the aroused backwoodsmen, who swarmed over the mountains from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia, and caught the British at Kings Mountain. [Suggest a different description.]
