Summer Lightning Distant Thunder (No. 1 of Wagon Road Trilogy)

Upon his return from London, Jackson Bain finds himself in opposition to his father, Squire Bain. Squire is adamant that his son join the family business and marry Rebecca Bomar, the woman selected by Squire to advance his business interests and social status. America of the 1770s is changing, evidenced by westward expansion. Intrigued by this expansion and desiring to come to know himself. Jackson goes against his father’s wishes and takes the Great Wagon Road south and west to the frontier.

Jackson’s idealistic longing for the frontier is shattered by a life-and-death encounter. This leads to a growing relationship with God and shapes his feelings for the beautiful Anna Walker.

While wrestling with his personal tragedy, Jackson receives word of a catastrophic event that springs from Squire Bain’s greed and need for control. This threatens the entire structure of Jackson’s family and his yet unspoken love for Anna Walker. Jackson’s focus turns from wanderlust to a genuine search for redemption.

“Beautifully written! Kinton’s prose is lean and elegant, with an emphasis on convincing dialogue and historically accurate details. Kinton’s characters boldly chase their dreams amid the hardships of 18th Century life in Appalachia. A rustic, romantic story beautifully told and a pleasure to read.”  – Debbie Stringer, Editor: Today In Mississippi

“Do you ever wonder what happened to those writers that could tell a hunting or fishing story in such a way that made you want to grab a gun or rod and head for the outdoors? The breed is a rare one and Tony Kinton may be one of the last. Unlike today’s high-tech ‘how to do it’ outdoor writers, Tony’s brand of how to do it is how to enjoy yourself in the outdoors. How to feel good about yourself and what you’re doing. He is a minstrel of the woods and streams, singing gentle phrases that warm a sportsman’s spirit and sweeten his soul.

“I have walked in deep woods with Tony Kinton and know his footsteps to be as quiet as a leaf on still water. So too are his words, but they have a way of echoing in your memory that makes you rejoice in being an outdoorsman. Treat yourself to Tony Kinton.” – Jim Carmichel, Shooting Editor for Outdoor Life.


“This is an eloquent volume, full of beauty and truth, and for this reason it is an important body of work. This is a good book, an honest book, and one that is sure to remain a favorite in every sportsman’s library.” – Bruce Brady, Editor-At-Large, Outdoor Life.
