Trailblazer: Part Two
by Lynelle Sweat Mason
Join young N.W. (Noble Wimberly) Jones and his family on a bold journey from their home in Lambeth, England to settling into the Georgia colony.
The Georgia where N.W. lived as a teenager and young man (1740–1753) was marked by wars and Indian turmoil. The “Malcontents” finally suc-ceeded in getting the laws against rum and slaves repealed. General James Oglethorpe was fed up with their gripes, so he returned to England. The trustees also grew tired of the endless complaints and decided to turn the colony over to the British government. Georgia was now a crown colony.

Trailblazer is packed with historical details and will be enjoyed by readers of all ages as they join N.W. in exciting and challenging adventures. —Mary Jayne Allen, Retired Minister of Education, First Baptist Church,, Chattanooga, Tenn.
