Publisher's Summary

Lische, the second book by Wynn Johnson, reads like a novel but the people we meet and the events that take place were very real. The author relates in detail how his ancestor, Lische, establishes his farm after staking his claim in the wild lands of Kentucky in 1857. He marries his childhood sweetheart, Sally, in 1858 and, almost against his original idea of leading a simple, self-sufficient farming life, becomes the patriarch of a very successful family where their businesses make them very wealthy. 

Lische retains the love of a simple life on a farm in a spectacular setting, but he is unable to resist the requirements and ambitions of a developing country and he has to succumb to the new ways in order to survive.
