A compelling historical tale of bravery in the face of a rapidly changing cultural and national landscape.
About The Book
They were blood-thirsty savages - superstitious, dirty animals. They were thieves and killers who burned houses to the ground and kidnapped women and children.
They were protectors of a Nation - guerrilla fighters serving their country. They were husbands and fathers who built homes in lush valleys for their families.
They were - the same men.
In 1775, perspective came with the color of your skin.
An orphan boy, Totsuhwa, is taken under the wing of legendary Cherokee war chief Tsi’yugunsini, the Dragon - but even under a dragon’s wing isn’t safe when a covetous nation forms around them. Amid the battles, Totsuhwa fights the reoccurring pain of loss until he meets Galegi, who becomes his wife. Trying to raise their son in a peace the new world won’t allow, they teach him the strictest Cherokee traditions while white assimilation, encroachment, and treachery grows. General Andrew Jackson wages war against tribes across the southeast, and the toll is high. With his people gradually losing everything, Totsuhwa must find a way to save his family - and the Cherokee nation - before all is lost.
Cherokee Talisman recreates the neglected history that existed when one nation was born and another almost died.
