Tournament is the successful first novel by Shelby Foote, a major Southern writer whose masterpiece, The Civil War: A Narrative, has become the modern standard of work for historical narrative. In this novel many of the remarkable characters from Jordan County, Foote's fictional Mississippi Delta county, come upon the literary scene for the first time.

    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.
