9780156576819: The Massacre at Fall Creek

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.
