Publisher's Summary

"In the most barren, inhospitable, unhealthy part of North America, opposed by the most savage, inveterate perfidious cruel Enemy, with zeal and with Bayonets only, it was resolv’d to follow Green’s Army, to the end of the World.” So wrote British general Charles O’Hara about the epic confrontation between Nathanael Greene and Charles Cornwallis during the winter of 1780-81. Only Greene’s starving, threadbare Continentals stood between Cornwallis and control of the South - and a possible end to the American rebellion. The British doggedly pursued Greene’s bedraggled soldiers, yet the rebels remained elusive. In constant rain and occasional snow, Greene’s soldiers - tracking the ground with their bloody feet - bound toward a secret stash of boats on the Dan River. Just before Cornwallis could close his trap, the Continentals crossed into Virginia and safety.

To the End of the World: Nathanael Greene, Charles Cornwallis, and the Race to the Dan is a carefully documented and beautifully written account of this extraordinary chapter of American history.

The book is published by Westholme Publishing. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.

“Thoroughly researched, balanced, and engagingly written volume...will appeal to general readers as well as providing a resource for scholars.” (Jim Piecuch, author of The Battle of Camden)
