It was decades ago when author Thomas Fox Averill heard the song "Tennessee Stud" by Jimmie Driftwood. He enjoyed the lyrical story of courtship, love, and fugitive life so much, that he first used the song as a lullaby for his children, then decided to write a novel about it. Rode was chosen as the 2012 Outstanding Western Novel by the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma. Averill describes his unique methods of research and how his personal interests lead to his fiction, which also include his earlier novels, Secrets of the Tsil Café and The Slow Air of Ewan McPherson, and three collections of short stories.
