Nancy N. Baxter
The McClures, Poore descendants, Brookses and their Indian relatives (surprisingly) go to fight the Civil War and maintain the homefront, as they did in actual history. This fictional recreation of their fortunes in the great conflict reveals the human element of the war and life in southern Indiana while it was going on: the scramble for advancement which pitted cousin against cousin, the wearing and dangerous passage through camps and battlefields in the East and in Kentucky and scores of secondary and minor characters bring this epic of real Hoosier men and women to life for 21st century readers.
Aptly chosen title for this story of a war which did divide the great dream of the founding of the country. Alan Nolan author of The Iron Brigade.

His mother joins in to tell traditional Miami tales and recount the stories of Sakia, Crane Girl, Asondaki’s moon-in-the-wild and the lives of historical figures like Little Turtle. Now an e-book.
