About the Book

The inspiring story of five silversmiths in three generations will take you on their incredible journey from North Carolina to Alabama in 1834. Each individual, known as a gifted artisan, represents a unique class of citizen that helped to form the history of early Americana. Their very lives reflected the importance of endurance, strength, and Christian values during the onset wave of migration in the eighteenth century. The Huntington's were only one of those particular families. They enthusiastically bought and sold property, built homes, and took on the responsibility needed to establish their new lives as early settlers, while attempting to achieve social and economic success for themselves. Although written as a historical fiction, this work is based on a true story.
