This Scorched Earth is an amazing tour de force depicting a family's journey from devastation to rebirth following the American Civil War, from New York Times bestselling author William Gear.

The American Civil War tore at the very roots of our nation and destroyed most of a generation.

To truly understand the madness and despair of such a horrendous conflict one needs to pick a moment.
Or see that war through one family's eyes.

In rural Arkansas, such was the Hancocks. Devastated by a cruel war, they faced down their personal hells and in spite of it all survived. Their survival is a testament to the power of love...and the American spirit.

This is their story. And ours.
