Tony Holtzman turns an entertaining yarn into a great novel with unforgettable characters in a beautiful but unforgiving setting in the 19th century. The history and politics of the era are skillfully woven into the story along with romance, tragedy, forgiveness, and redemption. I am already looking forward to the next two books of the trilogy.

"Axton Landing" is remarkable for its skill in bringing major social issues of the mid 1800's into a lively and moving narrative in which the characters' very personal journeys give the reader an insider's experience of struggles involving unions, the lumber industry, women's rights, slavery, and the coming "war between the states." The book is both good literature and good history, and when I finished it I felt thoroughly prepared to enter the next two books of the trilogy with an intimate connection to the lead protagonists.

Overkill written in grammar that would fail high school English class. This isn neither a good read nor very informative.

As one who is interested in history, I was delighted to read Tony Holtzman's novel set in upstate New York in a place called Axton Landing. Had this book only been about the logging camp at Axton Landing in the winter of 1858 and the harsh conditions the loggers had to endure, it would have been a satisfying read. The author writes with authority about real life conditions during that time and in that place, and the characters come alive, become flesh and blood people as they struggle to survive and better themselves. The main character, Cyrus Carter, is a likable man who meets challenges head on and is not afraid to speak his mind, nor to work hard, nor to defend those who are less able. But this is a story of much more than the logging camp life. It is about the issues of the time, including pre-Civil War politics, slavery, and social issues of the day. Because of the complex milieu of all these issues and the characters in the novel, it is much more than a satisfying read. It is a novel about making history and how the people rose to meet and overcome both the challenges of a harsh environment and the challenges the country faced in 1858 and beyond. Holtzman's sense of history and the authority with which he writes draws readers in to this tale--and we look forward to the other books in the trilogy. Ronald L. Donaghe, winner of the Jim Duggins' "Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist" award, 2008.

Format: Paperback
A fascinating piece of Americana with a suspenseful story line. Here is a little known spin on the Civil war( which author, Tony Holtzman, refers to as"the Uncivil War). With the slavery issue a given, others such as the class struggle, literacy, women's rights, and health come into play.
The time frame of the novel is the 1850s. The setting is the richly forested Adirondacks Mountains where lumberjacks eke out a living,where the mortality rate is high due to the dangers of the work, sickness, and malnutrition. In addition, are the hostilities among the ethnic groups: English, Irish, French-Canadian etc,
The book is a real page-turner, with constant intrigue among the bosses and workers, and especially the love story of Mary Corbett, the local school-teacher.
Holtzman writes in that Hemingway "in-your-face style where every detail is significant. The book is extremely wel-suited to a TV series. And because of the historic setting, it has an educational dimension as well as that of entertainment. .
