From the back cover:
Five white men stand accused of the murder of innocent, peaceful Indians among them women and children. It is 1824, and Indiana is the western frontier of a new nation where Seneca warriors stand ready to fall on fledgling settlements should white mans justice fail. In a powerful American saga fashioned from the sparse historical record, Jessamyn West creates characters an appealing heroine, her lover, the attorney for the defense, an extraordinary Indian seer who stand at the center of a maelstrom of human emotions: hate, devotion, revenge, compassion, and above all, love. As the narrative sweeps from the crimes to the tension-packed trial and its strangely moving aftermath, the novel carries the reader to an awareness of undeniably modern implications of our historical past.
