Read full description of the books:
Like Mandingo and Drum, Master of Falconhurst shatters the genteel image of the Old South and lays bare the savage truth about slavery and slave-breeding...about plantations like Falconhurst where the cash crop was black flesh, where human beings were stripped bare in the marketplace and sold like cattle.
In this great new bestseller, Kyle Onstott unfolds the turbulent drama of Falconhurst caught up in the violence of the Civil War. It also is the story of Drummage, the virile and handsome slave who rose to become not only ruler of Falconhurst, but master of the selfish, sensual woman who owned it.

Read information about the author(Information from the article "The Master of Mandingo" by Rudy Maxa, which appeared in The Washington Post, July 13, 1975.)
The son of a midwestern general store owner, he moved to California with his widowed mother in the early 1900s and was a local breeder and judge in regional dog shows. He was an eccentric who was happy with a life of little work, ample cigarettes, and gin.
After collaborating with his adopted son on a book on dog breeding, he decided to write a book that would make him rich. Utilizing his son's anthropology research on West Africa, he handwrote Mandingo and his son served as editor. Denlinger's, a small Virginia publisher, released it and it became a national sensation, consumed by the public and derided by the critics.
After its paperback release by Fawcett, Onstott began his collaboration with Lance Horner, a Boston eccentric with a knack for recreating Onstott's style. The two men never met, but they collaborated on several books before Onstott's death, after which Horner continued the Falconhurst saga and penned other pulpy novels set in other eras. When Horner died in 1970, Fawcett signed prolific author Harry Whittington to continue writing Falconhurst tales under the name of Ashley Carter.
Although the Falconhurst series has sold near or over 15 million copies, it (and its authors) remain in the shadows of bestselling popular literature.
