The Confederation of The People
“A FRONTIER SAGA WITH A LIBERAL DOSE OF WAR, POLITICS, AND ROMANCE.”
The western tribes put aside ancient enmities and form a confederation to oppose the invasion of their lands by the American army and settlers. The confederation has advantages: control of gold mines and superior weapons supplied by a shadowy Asian people called the Celestials. The confederation of The People is led by the Beothuk who escaped extinction in their ancient homeland in eastern Canada and settled in the American western plains.
A fanciful retelling of the frontier story interlaced with a star-crossed love story – an impressionable army lieutenant and a young Indian girl who is better educated and speaks more languages than her soldier lover.
“Well-written and vividly descriptive the reader is swept into the heart the Beothuk village with its customs, culture, history and storytelling.”
