Isaac – Trek to King’s Mountain Now Audible Book

Isaac: Trek to King’s Mountain, by J. Wayne Fears, was first released in 2012, as an eBook for young adults (10- to 20-years old approx.) and later as a paperback. The publisher, Bannock Books, quickly found that interest in the little-known 1780 Battle of Kings Mountain (a turning point of the American Revolutionary War) extended well beyond that particular age group. Older readers were also buying this book. Over the years, requests from individuals who preferred to listen to their books steadily increased. Their requests were duly noted. This week, Bannock Books announced that  Isaac: Trek To King’s Mountain is now available in an audible version, read by the renowned professional voice of John Davenport.
