Discovery on East TN farm inspires a novel

Discovery on East TN farm inspires a novel

A discovery on her farm inspired a Roane County woman to write a book.

Her novel is true to history and East Tennessee.

The book starts with the words, "It lay where it was buried for over 100 years."

That is until one day when Tom McCracken plowed a field on the Roane County farm where he's lived with his wife, Shirley, for 40 years.

Shirley McCracken explained, "His plow turned it up. He was stopping to pick up rocks and throw them off the field and found a breastplate somewhere right in this area."
