Summary:

This debut novel by Shelby Foote, a major Southern writer whose masterpiece is The Civil War: A Narrative, introduces Hugh Bart, a farmer confronting life’s problems in the postbellum South. Hugh’s story is told through a clever blend of rich language and flashbacks that bring to life Jordan County, Foote’s fictional Mississippi Delta community. Many of the remarkable characters introduced here will become staples of Foote’s future works.
Highly praised both here and abroad, Foote’s novels have been on bestseller lists in France and Italy. Whether writing historical narrative or novels, Shelby Foote clearly belongs to the first rank of American writers of our century.

    Shelby Foote's first novel, written in 1949 and before his better known "Trilogy" of the Civil War, demonstrates a skill with prose and story telling that is unique in style and character. To be honest, I found it difficult to follow the story in the first several CD's ... but as I became accustomed to Foote's writing style, the story flowed without a hitch. Tournament is a classic Southern tragedy with a very powerful ending.
