Light a Distant Fire | [Lucia St. Clair Robson]

Light a Distant Fire

Threatened with forced removal from their Florida homeland, the Seminole and Miccosukee Indians took up arms. Using alligator-infested swamps to their advantage, they fought the U.S. Army to a standstill. Unable to win militarily, General Thomas Jesup captured his enemies under flags of truce. With most of their people transported west, fewer than a hundred remained hidden in the heart of the Everglades, members of the only tribe never to surrender.

    Story
    "Accurate portrayal of the Life & Times of Osceola"
    What made the experience of listening to Light a Distant Fire the most enjoyable?

    The en-depth study of the life and times of this important period of time and the Great Seminole Leader Osceola. Lucia maintained the 'spirit' of the Characters and the incidents perfectly, according to my Tribal Seminole Story Tellers.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Light a Distant Fire?

    The message Osceola gave to his daughter at the time of his passing.


    What about Gene Engene’s performance did you like?

    The performance of Gene Engene keeps the listener involved moment to moment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    Coupled with Lucia St. Clair Robson, outstanding research work on the subject matter and Gene Engene vocal interpretations of Light a Distant Fire characters set the ground work that motivated me to get another audible book.

    "Returned"

    I love the Native American cultures and the knowledge, research & adventures written by this author. However, I do not care for her style of writing. She usually has multiple characters in different lives and in one sentence will jump ahead months or years and the reader is left scratching their head wondering what happened to the drama unfolding at the previous time zone. She might write about rituals, story telling, chants, songs, etc. for pages before you realize it is seven years later and there were a whole lot of good stories to be told in between times. Characters appeared and disappeared without a clue as to where or why.
    I enjoyed "Ride The Wind" immensely and I did, in fact, read (listen) to "Ghost Warrior" to the end, even though it was one of the books which I described above.
