John Fox Jr. published this great romantic novel of the Cumberland Mountains of Kentucky and Virginia in 1908, and the book quickly became one of America's favorites. It has all the elements of a good romance -- a superior but natural heroine, a hero who is an agent of progress and enlightenment, a group of supposedly benighted mountaineers to be drawn into the flow of mainstream American culture, a generous dose of social and class struggle, and a setting among the misty coves and cliffs of the blue Cumberlands.
Reprinted with a foreword by John Ed Pearce, The Trail of the Lonesome Pine has all the excitement and poignance that caught and held readers' interest when the book first appeared.

In the early 1900s, the advent of coal and the resulting industrialization of the isolated Cumberland Mountain region of Kentucky and Virginia bring many changes to the feuding Tolliver and Fallin clans. Engineer Jack Hale comes to the region to make his fortune, but stays when he falls in love with the mountains and with a simple mountain girl.
