Set in the 1300's the Sky Hand control the territory where Chief Flying Hawk rules with his nephew Smoke Sheild. They are ruthless warriors. Find out if peace will ever come over this land or will the leaders continue on their rein of terror and destroy the people and the land? The Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Yuchi peoples will come to life in this amazing historical fiction novel.
This is an extremly graphic book. I think it is only fair to warn you. There is graphic rape, torture and abuse. This book is real and doesn't hold back any punches. If you love to learn about the past this is a book for you. It really brings the past alive with believable characters and circumstances. It reminds us that we are not so different than our Native American past. People are people, good, bad, indifferent.
