Chariot on the Mountain

Chariot on the Mountain

Jack Ford

Pub: July 31, 2018



A novel based on one of the most remarkable court cases in American history – a trial largely forgotten until now, as it is brought vividly to life by Emmy and Peabody award-winning journalist Jack Ford. Part adventure tale and part courtroom drama, Chariot on the Mountain is an astonishing account of the unlikely alliance between three extraordinary women – a young slave, her mistress, and the daughter of a wealthy land owner – their heroic and dangerous struggle against the shackles of slavery in the Old South, and the trailblazing court case they undertook.
