"It's the early spring of 1875 in the Cherokee Nation West. A baby, a black hired hand, a bay horse, a gun, a gold stash, and a preacher have all gone missing. Cherokee America Singer, known as "Check," a wealthy farmer, mother of five boys, and soon-to-be widow, is not amused. In this tale of the American frontier, several plots intertwine around the heroic and resolute Check: her son is caught in a compromising position that results in murder; a neighbor disappears; another man is killed. The tension mounts and the violence escalates as Check's mixed race family, friends, and neighbors come together to protect their community--and painfully expel one of their own"-- Provided by publisher.

Tale of the a community of civilized Oklahoma Indians in the late 1800's and early 1900's in Indian Territory. A moving story that includes their customs, way of life, heartaches, laughter and the encroachment of the whites. Story line is great, I would recommend reading this tale to all Oklahomans.

A DISAPPOINTMENT. CHEROKEE WAS AN INDIAN WOMAN'S NAME. BOOK WAS PEDANTIC.
