Jack Overbey, who is no stranger to Appalachia, having been born and raised on a thirty-acre farm in central Kentucky, has completed the new book “John Martin: Mountain Man Extraordinaire”: a novel which draws some inspiration from his own transition from farm-life to exploring the country.

Overbey moved from Kentucky at the age of seventeen and began a life of roving from east to west, working in the lumber business, as a baker, and after moving back home to marry his high school sweetheart, served in the US Army as a master sergeant during the Korean War.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jack Overbey’s novel depicts all of the grit and brawn required by men, and women, in the harsh conditions that face those brave enough to live detached from the relative easiness of city-life.

From interacting with Indian tribes, to being at the mercy of unpredictable terrain and weather, “John Martin: Mountain Man Extraordinaire” highlights the American countryside, and the skills John Martin must utilize to survive and thrive in the great outdoors.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping novel can purchase“John Martin: Mountain Man Extraordinaire” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
