Doug’s Rating    

The Altamaha River, a.k.a. “Altama”, “Alatamaha” and even “Hallatomahaw”, is the setting for Taylor Brown’s latest novel, The River of Kings.  The Altamaha River remains the longest free-flowing river system on the U.S. East Coast.

This story is a mix of historical fiction as the author recounts the journey of a doomed sixteenth century French expedition into the river looking for gold and the parallel and present day story of two brothers who drift down the Altamaha seeking answers to the mystery surrounding the untimely death of their father.  The setting of The River of Kings is as important as the journey of the human characters. That's what makes this book beautiful.  Taylor’s book will appeal to the lovers of the outdoors, history, mystery and followers of Charles Frazier and Cormac McCarthy.
