Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling authors W. Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear present the third installment of their gripping chronicle of the earliest European settlers, as seen through the eyes of North American natives.

Here Black Shell and his wife Pearl Hand emerge from exile and rededicate their lives to stopping de Soto and his Kristiano invaders. Taking a great gamble with his own life and those of his people, Black Shell crafts an elaborate plot that will change the course of history.

A great conclusion to an interesting series

Admittedly, when I started the series I wasn't really sure what I was getting myself into. I've never read novels that weave in snippets of historical events, no less from the more undertold side of the story. W. Michael and Kathleen O'Neal Gear do a respectful job and create and entertaining and interesting story that compelled me to complete the series. I strongly recommend the series for those who have both an intellectual curiosity about Native American history and who enjoy a good entertaining story that is definitely fiction, but brings up some interesting thoughts about Desoto's losses in the US when he was so victorious in Mexico.
