The Slave Catcher's Woman
– July 1, 2013 (see book on Amazon)
Expertly researched and vividly written this historical novel (with its memorable cast of characters, intriguing twists and turns, and unencumbered portrayals of life during the pre-civil war south) invites the reader to venture upon an unforgettable, enlightenng journey into one of the most controversial periods of our history.
Georgia bounty hunter Coswell Tims is the focus of this story. As one reviewer said, "Tims' voice is that of an engaging backwoods storyteller who soon wins the reader's sympathy in this action-packed narrative of killings, fist-fights, knifings and kidnappings. Interspersed between accounts of these adventures Littlefield manages to painlessly insert well-researched nuggets of American history ranging from riverboats to smallpox."
