Overview


Fiction. Native American Studies. MIKO KINGS: AN INDIAN BASEBALL STORY is an homage to the dusty roads and wind-blown diamonds of America's first moving picture about baseball, His Last Game. Just as Henri Day and his team, the Miko Kings, are poised to win the 1907 Twin Territories' Pennant against their archrivals, the Seventh Cavalrymen from Fort Sill, pitcher Hope Little Leader finds himself embroiled in a plot that will destroy him and the Indian team. Only the town's chimeric postal clerk, Ezol Day, understands the outcome of Hope's last game and how it will affect Indians and baseball for the next four generations.

Set in Indian Territory that is about to become part of Oklahoma, MIKO KINGS tells of the turbulent days before statehood when white settlers and gamblers are swindling the Indians out of their land and what has already happened will change its course. "They're stories that travel now as captured light in someone else's telescope," Ezol Day will tell the woman who should have been her granddaughter. In MIKO KINGS, LeAnne Howe bends the pitch of time to return us to the roots of a national game.
