Summary
It's the early spring of 1875 in the Cherokee Nation West. A baby, a black hired hand, a bay horse, a gun, a gold stash, and a preacher have all gone missing. Cherokee America Singer, known as "Check," a wealthy farmer, mother of five boys, and soon-to-be widow, is not amused. She's accustomed to wielding authority, and she's determined to find out what's going on. In the aftermath of the Civil War, complex alliances and simmering race and culture clashes unite and divide the people living on Cherokee lands. Tensions mount and violence escalates, and the long arms of white law encroaches further into Indian Territory. Determined to survive and thrive on their own terms after decades of betrayal and hardship, Check's family, friends and neighbours must come together to avenge a crime, outwit federal authorities, and protect their sovereignty. Inspired by Margaret Verble's family history, this is a Western told from a Native American point of view with a mixed-race woman at its center
