The Story

Horn in the West, the nation's oldest Revolutionary War drama, brings to life the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone and the hardy mountain settlers of the region in their struggle to preserve their freedom during the turbulent years before and during the War for Independence. The drama highlights those settlers who came to the Blue Ridge Mountains seeking freedom and escape from British tyranny.  Dr. Geoffrey Stuart, a prominent British physician, comes to the Colony of Carolina to study the dreaded disease smallpox, bringing his wife, Martha, and their teenage son, Jack.  Through hardship and danger, house-raising and romance, the ties that bind the Stuart family and the small pioneer community grow.  Dr. Stuart finds himself a respected leader in this hidden mountain community but has to resolve his conflicted feelings of loyalty to the Crown and his family's sympathy for the Regulators and their fight for American independence.
