From the publisher: “When Samuel Price Carson became a state senator at the age of 24, he launched a political career that led him to the National Congress in 1825, where he became deeply involved int he dramatic events that shaped the destiny of the South. Described by historians as the era of intellectual and political giants, the Capital and its parade of the great and the near-great are vividly and sometimes humorously portrayed through Carson’s eyes in this book, a biographical novel dealing with Carson’s friends and family in his Southern homeland, in the halls of Congress and later in the embattled Republic of Texas. Beloved by his numerous relatives, recognized and respected for his talents and abilities, Carson’s first few years in government were filled with romance and excitement. All seemed promising for the handsome young representative from North Carolina until personal tragedy struck deep, destroying his health and his hopes to serve his country.”


A Long, Long Day For November
