      Fire on the Mountain is, however, more than mere investigative journalism. While offering action and adventure storytelling at its best, it also provides deeply moving insights into the lives and dreams of a special breed of people who put their own well-being on the line as part of their daily jobs. James McBride’s The Good Lord Bird was the National Book Award winner. There has even been a sci fi novel wherein Brown is one of the protagonists. Hugo Award-winning author Terry Bisson’s Fire on the Mountain imagines an alternative America, where Brown’s attack on Harpers Ferry in what is now West Virginia had succeeded. A southern novel set in an alternate universe, where the Civil War never happened and America is a divided utopia, Fire on the Mountain gives a panoramic novel of political speculation and a personal story about the adjustment of one black woman to the tragic loss of her astronaut multdemsvote.com Range: $ - $
