Horse-Shoe Robinson by John Pendleton Kennedy ( Book )
124 editions published between 1835 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Horse-shoe Robinson is among Pendelton's most commercially successful novel. It deals with the American Revolution in the South, and is a regional piece marked by the vivid description that was notable in Swallow Barn. Horse-show Robinson concerns the daughter of a Tory who secretly marries a patriot. The story is notable for its title protagonist, a crude but resourceful blacksmith, and also for its portrayal of the Battle of King's Mountain
Swallow barn; or, A sojourn in the Old Dominion by John Pendleton Kennedy ( Book )
87 editions published between 1832 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Swallow Barn is a novel of antebellum life on a tidewater Virginia plantation, described by the author as "variously and interchangeably partaking of the complexion of a book of travels, a diary, a collection of letters, a drama, and a history." The collection of sketches purports to be an account of the "seeings and thinkings" of Mark Littleton on his first visit to the South. Addressed to a fellow Northerner, Littleton's descriptions of Frank Merriwether and his estate bathe the plantation in a kind of nostalgic glow that nonetheless does political work in the present. The first edition was published on the eve of the Nullification Controversy. Kennedy decided to republish it in the early 1850s, he wrote to a fellow Southerner, as "an antidote to the abolition mischief."
