Controversial Ned Carmack embodied the very image of Mark Twain's fictional Tennessee editor who sowed “editorial wild oats” with pistol at the ready. Yet Carmack's true story, told by a master of Tennessee history, is more fascinating than any fiction. Carmack emerged from rural poverty to become a crusading editor, a Congressman and U.S. Senator, and to die in a gunfight in Nashville in 1908. His life-and his death-shaped Tennessee politics for a generation.
