REBEL FALLS, a historical novel, will be released in May from Three Hills/Cornell Press. Ken Burns says, "Once again, Tim Wendel finds a riveting story to tell, this time in a little-known theater of our most complicated of wars."
Poet E. Ethelbert Miller adds that it's "as if history is looking over your shoulder."
Novelist Mary Kay Zuravleff calls the novel "vivid and surprising," while SirusXM's Larry Kirwan salutes the novel's "vibrant new heroine."
