Description

"Home In The Wilderness" by Effie Meek Maiden is an authentic story of a pioneer family's settlement in West Tennessee after the Indian removal. The story begins in 1848, when James A. Meek travels by horseback from his mill on the Duck River near Chapel Hill, TN to Weakley County to investigatae the appeals made to him by Major Alexander Ralston to settle in the "Western District" and ends in 1880. Most of the facts in the manuscript are accurate, for example, the early street names in Nashville (1848); the buildings, locations and roads named in Memphis (1864) and the Civil War battle reports regarding actions at Columbus, KY, Brice's Crossroads, MS, Nathan Bedford Forrest's raids on Memphis and the fighting at Union city, TN. "Home In The Wilderness" is a window into the lives of the early settlers of Tennessee and their day-to-day life.
