The life of Francis Marion by William Gilmore Simms ( )
71 editions published between 1811 and 2010 in English and held by 2,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The facts, in the life of Francis Marion, are far less generally extended in our country than his fame. The present is an attempt to supply this deficiency, and to justify, by the array of authentic particulars, the high position which has been assigned him among the master-workers in our revolutionary history. The task has been a difficult, but I trust not entirely an unsuccessful one. Our southern chronicles are meagre and unsatisfactory

The novel focuses on the Southern frontier that William Gilmore Simms knew so well, a frontier whose vernacular, courage, humor, folklore, violence, injustice, and beauty are vividly brought to life through the strokes of his pen. Simms' particularly realistic style is evident throughout the book. This book is a written survey of Choctaw history from the late Mississippian era in the 16th century. Simms has presented an incident he encountered as he travelled from his home in South Carolina to visit his father
