"With an ethnohistorian's attention to context and detail, Charles Hudson has written a compelling novel about the eighteenth-century Carolina backcountry and its memorable characters, the likes of whom the documentary record rarely reveals."—Theda Perdue, professor emerita of history, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
"Whether trudging through the dismal swamps, riding through the solitary longleaf forest, or just hanging out at the cowpen, Hudson renders the life of an eighteenth-century Southern cow hunter's life palatable and real. With a true sense of place and time, Hudson brings the little-known colonial South Carolina backcountry to spectacular life."—Robbie Ethridge, professor of anthropology, The University of Mississippi
"Expertly written from first page to last, "The Cow-Hunter" documents Charles Hudson as a master storyteller and a compelling novelist whose attention to historical detail brings authenticity to a fictional entertainment. A compelling and entertaining read from beginning to end, "The Cow-Hunter" is very highly recommended for western adventure enthusiasts and community library collections."—Jack Mason, The Midwest Book Review
