Travelers' Rest, by Ben Robertson, with introduction by Beatrice Naff Bailey and Alan Grubb (Clemson, SC: Clemson University Press, 2015), xx+192pp. Paper. ISBN 978-0-9908958-7-9
Travelers' Rest is a family epic, but it is also an American epic, carrying a message that can also be found in Ben Robertson's other, more famous works, Red Hills and Cotton and I Saw England (his first-hand account of the Battle of Britain). Thoughts of the Republic's founding and American values were very much on Robertson's mind as a journalist covering Washington and Europe as he anticipated the coming of the Second World War.
