Focusing on Cherokee folklore, history, and tradition, each chapter of this fast-moving novel begins with the retelling of an authentic Cherokee legend that is then woven into the adventures of Dancing Leaf, a character based on the unnamed, adopted daughter of Cherokee Chieftainess Nancy Ward. Fascinating regional history comes through in references to locales of significance to the Cherokee during the 1820's and characters who represent important figures of the era such as Five Killer and Longfellow.
