In the East, his people has lived on the land for thousands of years. Now it was a nation bitterly divided, and Nickjack had decided to leave it behind. But when his country's broken heart came chasing after him in the West, he found himself with enemies he didn't choose, forcing him to pick an old, oiled pistol, and aiming it at a stranger in self-defense. A reckoning has begun--as Nickajack faced a law that accused him of murder, and sealed his fate forever.
Nickajack is Robert J. Conley's classic novel of the Cherokeee nation, its tragic displacement, and the confluence of suffering, betrayal, politics and fate that led one man into a fight for survival--and his soul.
