Book description
As a young man, George Panther was taught the healing arts by his grandfather. Now a respected medicine man within the Cherokee Nation, he has been entrusted with an obligation to serve his people by helping them achieve good fortune and protecting them from harm.

Now, knowing he'll never receive a fair trial in the white man's courts, George must use all his medicine to elude US marshals and wage war against an unforgiving enemy who wields power beyond his imagination ...
