Lucullus Virgil McWhorter. Softbound, 536 pages, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". In the contest for land Jesse Hughes bore a part far beyond that of the average settler. He was one of those woodsmen in whom was concentrated the hardiness, daring, and fierce and uncontrollable spirit of his barbarous ancestors in the fens and on the swamp shores of Northwestern Europe. It was war, danger, adventure. On the trail of the wild Indian his soul hardened to iron and his nature grew more savage than that of the man he hunted. He was grim, cruel, relentless, and bloodthirsty . . . a product of the age in which he lived.
