Ned Christie saw his people's past and future. From the broken treaties and the lost lands of the East to new betrayals in the Indian territory, Christie knew the Cherokee nation was threatened not by guns, but by laws. Then, on his way to a tribal council in Tahlequah, Christie was in the wrong place at the wrong time. A U.S. marshal was murdered. Fate turned Ned Christie--a father, a husband, and a man of vision--into an outlaw. Courage turned him into a warrior.

Cloaking himself in the magic of his people and the love of his family, an innocent man would fight back: for a crime he did not commit, against hatred he did not deserve, and against men determined to gun Ned Christie down...
