In 1775, chance brings together an orphaned Cherokee boy, Redbird (Tot-su-wha) and ‘the Dragon,’ a historic Chief of the great Nation. Twenty years of broken treaties, battles, and maturity follow as the boy grows under the master tutelage of his mentor. The young man takes his place as a shaman of the rapidly displaced Cherokee people. He raises his own son in the truest traditions until, on the verge of the infamous Trail of Tears, the family and their Nation, is ripped apart. Dramatic and historically accurate to the most finite detail.
