Between River and Mountain

Multiple File Formats

Young Rob Johnson just wants to farm his family's land in Morgan County, Virginia, and court pretty Fannie Swann, but the outbreak of war between the North and the South plunges him into a world of treachery and violence. Threatened by Rebel conscription gangs and Yankee foragers, Rob finally joins the 48th Virginia Infantry and experiences the horrors of war.

Rob still thinks of Fannie, who has been playing a dangerous game for the Southern cause. He's also attracted to brave Laura Meeks, who he saved from a group of renegades. Sick of death and fighting, Rob finds work among Quakers and meets Abigail Treverton -- the two are immediately drawn to each other. Treachery follows him, however, and Rob ends up a Yankee prisoner of war. He and his comrades escape, and he returns to find Abigail married. But what of Laura, and the child she says is his? Or Fannie, who was his first love?

Rob's troubles do not end with the Confederate surrender, for resentment and bitterness run deep between those who supported the South and those who were on the side of the North. After all he has endured, will Rob be able to keep his family farm and make a home for himself and those he loves?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
