This short story is actually an excerpt of the first two chapters out of my third book called "A Cherokee Wish." It takes place in the Shawnee Hills of southern Illinois in 1817 - 1818. It is the story of a white man who falls in love with a young Cherokee woman he saved from the harsh winter weather. They get married and make a new life for themselves in the hills. This new life involves a new home and children...and trouble!
