Summary
The South Carolina Back Country is no place for a young girl to grow up in the 1760s but sixteen-year-old Emily Stewart wouldn't have it any other way because she loves the settlement of Ninety Six where her father Breck Stewart runs a tavern with his family including Emily's embittered older brother Donnan. But there's much to fear too. Gangs of murderers thieves and robbers terrorize the country with impunity. Pleas to the government in Charlestown fall on deaf ears. As the savagery continues Breck Stewart finally is forced to take a stand forming a vigilante group called the Cane Creek Regulators. The settlers take the law into their own hands -- even though such an act will be considered treason and could land everyone riding with the vigilantes in a colonial prison or on the gallows
Summary
When her South Carolina community is overrun by violence, Emily Stewart struggles with mixed feelings after her tavern-keeper father and his friends form an illegal vigilante group to protect settler families
