Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988354543, Paperback)

As the War of 1812 approached, the Creek Indian Nation was in the middle of a civil war. They fought brutally between themselves, as well as with the white settlers who were encroaching upon tribal land. 
It was during this time Elly's family moved to the eastern Mississippi Territory for the promise of low-cost land and fertile soil. She had no idea they were moving into Creek territory - into the middle of a hornet's nest. Tafv's band of warriors taunted them, stealing their property, killing their animals, and destroying their livelihood. Just when the family thought things couldn't get any worse, during one of the Indian raids as Elly's husband chased the Indians away from the farm, Tafv's young son was killed in the pursuit. Tafv vowed revenge against Elly's family, and a final showdown was imminent. 
 "Elly Hays" is based on the real-life story of Elizabeth Hays Rodgers and is the epic clash between a fearless warrior with nothing to lose and a young mother on the verge of losing everything.
