With ‘Leaves Torn Asunder’ An Adirondack Historian Turns Novelist

leaves torn asunder book coverAfter two award-winning Adirondack non-fiction histories, author Glenn L. Pearsall of Johnsburg has turned novelist.

Leaves Torn Asunder: A Novel of the Adirondacks and the American Civil War was published by Pyramid Press of Utica.

Inspired by true events, Leaves Torn Asunder portrays a time rarely covered in Adirondack literature. Pearsall’s research included soldier diaries and letters, town enlistment and cemetery records, regimental histories, and visits to the exact places on Civil War battle sites where local men fought and died.

To accurately portray life on an Adirondack farm in the 1860s, extensive research was also conducted at the NYS Historical Society and Farmer’s Museum in Cooperstown. At one point, his research took him all the way to visit a lonely cemetery in the hills of Topsy, Missouri.

Leaves Torn Asunder is available at local book sellers as well as on Amazon.com.
