Praise for Chasing the North Star:

Robert Morgan remains the consummate storyteller. He is one of the best I've ever seen at making time move the way memory moves, weaving a sense of history, and offering characters so compelling that a kinship of the heart is felt. The characters linger in the mind, like a melody you can't and don't want to forget. This book must be read for its broad, sagacious wit as well as for its power to convince us of extraordinary courage in ordinary life.

— Elizabeth Cox, author of The Ragged Way People Fall Out of Love
. . .

Chasing the North Star is an epic journey, and Morgan's vision of our dark past shines brilliantly detailed, deeply satisfying, and ultimately hopeful.

— Charles Frazier, author of Nightwoods and Cold Mountain
. . .

Morgan writes with an enviable clarity that makes personalities, issues and event come alive on the page.

Robert Morgan's writing is... clear and simple, yet it possesses a luminous poetic quality, a rough beauty hewn from the countyside and from old, forgotten ways.

— The Philadelphia Inquirer
. . .

[Robert Morgan] is a seasoned author whose prose reads like poetry and whose nonfiction reads like novels... His books teach and inspire. He gives the past, with all its heroes and villains, a new life, if not a new purpose.

— Southern Literary Review
