Abstract:

Two brothers from Virginia migrate to new lands in the Mississippi territory (present-day Alabama) in the early 1800s. There they take brides, one an Indian woman and the other the daughter of another settler, and try to build lives on the border of the Creek Nation. At first, life is peaceful and happy as the two couples farm, build and trade with the Creeks living nearby. But as more Europeans arrive, economic forces, political ambition, and personal aggression result in increasing conflict and then bloodshed, culminating in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814. Tallapoosa is an exciting historical novel about the Creek Wars and the ramifications of U.S. aggression into Native American lands.
