Judge Madison Curtis has just pronounced the benediction over the grave of his eldest daughter when two grimy women riding double on a mule enter his driveway.

The sequel to Price's Hiwassee (1996), answering some moral questions left hanging in the earlier novel. In the previous story, set in North Carolina during the Civil War, Judge Madison Curtis, when the Curtis home and lands were threatened by bushwhackers, diverted a raiding party to a neighboring farm. The author weaves into the tale portions of his own family history (the Price and Curtis families here are factually inspired). By story's end, despite the warmth of Judge Curtis, the reconciliation of the races has failed to take place and the hate-mongers are on the rise.

Set during the early days of Reconstruction in the mountains of North Carolina, this novel is the second of four novels that create a multigenerational saga in which you will come to know some of the most honorable and most despicable characters ever to emerge from Civil War literature; and the fighting and hatred and fear continue to build as lives and emotions are squandered and sacrificed on the altar of freedom, long after the war has ended. Everyone is searching for something---revenge, profit, normalcy, love, reconciliation, redemption---and how each character goes about his own personal journey is the stuff of this novel. Price's characters, language, and emotions are true to place and time, and he writes with great beauty and clarity, tackling difficult and heartrending themes that show us the rawness of human nature played out during a time of great cultural angst. I recommend you treat yourself to a real feast by reading all four novels in the order they were written: Hiwassee, Freedom's Altar, The Cock's Spur, and Where the Water-Dogs Laughed.

This is the second of 4 books written about my ancestors and I am totally excited to read the other two. Charles Price did a wonderful job of telling my family's history.

Price takes you back to the hills of North Carolina to the Reconstruction period of the Civil War. Here the people must face the evils of reconstruction. They have to find the means of survival, good or bad. Price certainly has some very unique characters in his story that keeps you turning the page. It makes you wonder if they were the real McCoy.
