9780156576819: The Massacre at Fall Creek

A dramatic, sweeping saga of life on the Indiana frontier in 1824, based on actual historical events. The Fall Creek Massacre was a unique occurrence-the first recorded instance of whites being formally charged with murder for killing Indians. Five whites were accused, tried by jury, convicted, and executed. West uses this historical record as the source for a fictional account of the events of the massacre and trial.

Book Description HARVEST BOOKS, United States, 1986. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Five white men stand accused of the murder of innocent, peaceful Indians - among them women and children. It is 1824, and Indiana is the Western frontier of a new nation where Seneca warriors stand ready to fall on fledgling settlements should white men s justice fail. In a powerful American saga fashioned from the sparse historical record, Jessamyn West creates characters - an appealing heroine, her lover, the attorney for the defense, an extraordinary Indian seer - who stand at the center of a maelstrom of human emotions: hate, devotion, revenge, compassion, and, above all, love. As the narrative sweeps from the crimes to the tension-packed trial and its strangely moving aftermath, the novel carries the reader to an awareness of undeniably modern implications of our historical past.
