About the Book

Following the American Revolution, British influence waned with the Creek Indian Nation opening the door for American settlers to poach Creek lands. Treaties were signed, establishing formal relations between the United States and the Creek Nation, setting boundaries, and guaranteeing Creek sovereignty. Despite the treaties, American encroachment continued to erode the Creek nation, eventually setting Creeks allied with the United States against Red Stick Creeks in a bloody civil war. The Red Sticks fought to return their nation back to their traditional ways. But the time was long past for that. These circumstances form the backdrop of this story. Two men, with two visions, became locked in the violent and bloody battle for the frontier, only to find themselves fighting each other and destroying themselves.
