THE PROPHET OF COBB HOLLOW is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 1, 2016

'From the opening page, Mingo Kane's 'The Prophet of Cobb Hollow' will sink its teeth into you and refuse to let go... Reuben Judah is truly a legendary figure who rode and fought with some of the greatest warriors and gunslingers in United State's history. Inside him, however, resides a soft heart that remains in constant distress-trying to correct the wrongs within his shattered world. Kane's haunting prose will linger long after the final lines are read.' -Marguerite Wainio, editor and publicist When a New York novelist finds the dusty journal of a lost American legend, he can scarcely believe what he is reading. The story tells of a man having been rescued and raised by a Cherokee shaman named Three Crows, of riding with known gunslingers and a young Teddy Roosevelt, as a Confederate spy working for Mosby's Rangers during The Civil War, and the horrific conditions he experienced in the deadly trenches of World War I. As the War Between the States ends and our country begins to heal, this American legend returns home to find the remains of his murdered family, swearing an oath of vengeance against everyone responsible. Kane weaves a mesmerizing tale of one man and his decades-long retribution to avenge his beloved. Whether seen as a realistic glimpse into our forgotten past-or as the mythic retelling of narratives spun around the mystery that spawned his legend-he is the only man to have walked through the portals of our national history. He is the oldest living human on earth and now his oral collections are told as it was lived. His name is Reuben Shadrack Judah, and he is: The Prophet of Cobb Hollow. About the Author Mingo Kane is a graduate of Blue Ridge College (creative writing) and has written for 'The News Virginia' and has been published in several fitness magazines. Kane's previous books include, 'Gemini Man' and 'Scars of the Prophet'. Kane is an avid outdoorsman and long-range shooter, he can be found hunting or fishing the mountains near his home when he's not at work on his latest novel.
