Novelist Charles F. Price returns to City Lights on Saturday, July 19th at 7:00 P.M. to read from his new novel, Nor the Battle to the Strong: A Novel of the American Revolution in the South.
The book is garnering high praise from critics. Ron Rash says, “Charles Price has fused extensive research and a born storyteller’s talent to create a compelling novel of a too-long-neglected aspect of Southern, and American, history. Nor the Battle to the Strong is an impressive addition to Price’s already consider- able literary achievement.”
Price, whose previous works include Hiwassee, Freedom’s Altar, The Cock’s Spur, and Where the Water-Dogs Laughed, now turns his attention to the story of General Nathanael Greene, commander of the Southern Continental Army, and a common soldier serving under him, Scottish immigrant and runaway inden- tured servant James Johnson, during Greene’s arduous campaign in the late summer of 1781 to drive the British from South Carolina.
