(From the publisher):
Each morning Tiana greeted Grandmother Sun on the banks of Long Man, the Hiwassee River in Tennessee. Every year she joined in the mystical ceremony of corn planting.
She grew up learning the magic, spells, and nature religion of the Cherokee. And in a tribe that revered the life force that was female, she became a Beloved Woman -- priestess, warrior, healer, teacher.
HIstory knows him as the father of Texas, but the young Sam Houston ran away on a lark from his family's general store in Maryville, Tennessee, to live among the Cherokee. He hunted and played ritual games with the men and was adopted as a headman's son.
He came to love Tiana. As the Cherokee would say, she walked in his soul. But Sam was a white man eager for conquest and glory ... in a new nation that hungered for the Indians' fertile ancestral lands.
