Overview

Light a Distant Fire: A Novel of Osceola and the Second Seminole War by Lucia St. Clair Robson

When Andrew Jackson declared war on the Seminole, he never envisioned battling a people who would become symbols of courage, loyalty and patriotism. Inspired by Chief Osceola, they and their Black allies fought an unjust war of greed and aggression. In the vast, alligator-infested swamps of the Everglades they confounded the U.S. Army.
Unable to win militarily, the Seminole were captured under flags of truce and transported to Oklahoma Territory.
They are the only tribe never to surrender or sign a peace treaty.

About the Author

Osceola has been Lucia St. Clair Robson's hero from fourth grade on. She went on to become a Peace Corps Volunteer, a teacher, and a librarian. After her first novel, Ride the Wind, appeared on the New York times best seller list, she began writing full time. While researching Light a Distant Fire, she revisited the wilderness she remembered from childhood, and explored the rivers and mangrove swamps where she had camped, canoed decades earlier.
