The Reckoning: Blood Saga of the Cherokee, Chickasaw and Southeastern Expanssion (Paperback)
The Southeastern frontier westward expansion from 1750 to 1848 bringing pioneers
into the Native American struggle for survival. It was the most dangerous period
in history for a pioneer family to establish a home, as their entrance into the land clashed
with the native people who were fighting for everything they possessed, including their
very identity. In order to avoid removal, some Native Americans gave up their claim to the
name, and there are many of their descendants today who cannot trace their ancestry on
the Dawes Rolls.
"The Reckoning gives great significance to our nation's history and heritage of frontier
pioneers and Native Americans, as ethnic groups and cultures are intertwined across the
southeastern landscape of the United States. The Reckoning brings to life the characters in
the story that leaves very little to the imagination "
