"This tough, unforgettable novel tells the true story of Britt Johnson, an African-American folk hero who made long and incredibly difficult searches for Indian captives, and the other people whose lives were shattered by the Elm Creek raid. Along the way, Alan C. Huffines brilliantly dramatizes how the brutal realities of the frontier experience took a heavy toll on the most cherished human relationships, friendship and family life. Killed By Indians 1871 is a revelation."
