Kentucky Author Wins Publishing Contract With Civil War Novel
A new novel giving a no-holds-barred account of the horrors of the American Civil War and its aftermath has already set the critics talking.
"Despite its reach and impact, the American Civil War is still one of the least written about conflicts," said Sarah Luddington, Mirador's Commissioning Editor. "We see many submissions covering both World Wars, Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East but very few touching this war. It's almost as if there's a conspiracy of silence on this tragedy."
A chance visit to the Fort Donelson Military Park sent Kean on an investigative trail that led to him uncovering a wealth of letters and records of the minor players in the Civil War, the frontline soldiers. Several years of research and much hard work at the keyboard resulted in a novel that is already of international interest. The influential Book Reviewer said, "... author Dr Don C Kean has created something quite extraordinary out of one of the bloodiest wars in history."
