Guy de Maupassant, (1850 - 1893), a native of Normandy, wrote in a bold and vigorous style that moves inexorably along clear plot lines. He had an astonishing capacity for creating believable characters, and he wasted little ink in putting his stories in motion. Maupassant was a master of "le mot juste," waiting until the perfect word came to him before setting his thoughts to paper. He was one of the first truly modern writers, and today his stories still resonate with enthusiasm and originality.

Still, there are new arrivals to welcome: the Professor, an atheist whose unerring optimism is a nasty blow; and Thomas, chairman of a privatised water company (so vile that Judas Iscariot starts calling him the Guv'nor). Satan has to deal with a rebellion of his own from head demon Gary.
What if the history of America's largest Indian nation is actually a polite modern fiction, one invented by "anthropologists and other friends"?

The narrative starts in the third century BCE and concludes with the Cherokees' removal to Indian Territory in the 19th century, when all standard histories just begin.
