Jimmy Carter. The Hornet’s Nest: A Novel of the Revolutionary War. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2003.

Former President Jimmy Carter’s first novel (and the first novel to be published by an ex-President) follows Ethan Pratt and his family through the Southern colonies during the American Revolution. When things turn bad in Georgia, Pratt migrates to North Carolina in search of cheap land and opportunity. Carter’s thorough research is evident in his descriptions of the Regulator movement in Orange County and the battle of King’s Mountain.
