Some brief overview of book

A bestselling master of historical fiction, James Alexander Thom has brought unforgettable Native American figures to life for millions of readers, powerfully dramatizing their fortitude, fearsomeness, and profound fates. Now he and his wife, Dark Rain, have created a magnificent portrait of an astonishing womanone who led her people in war when she could not persuade them to make peace. Her name was Nonhelema.

Literate, lovely, imposing at over six feet tall, she was the Womens Peace Chief of the Shawnee Nationand already a legend when the most decisive decade of her life began in 1774. That fall, with more than three thousand Virginians poised to march into the Shawnees home, Nonhelemas plea for peace was denied. So she loyally became a fighter, riding into battle covered in war paint.

When the Indians ran low on ammunition, Nonhelemas role changed back to peacemaker, this time tragically. Negotiating an armistice with military leaders of the American Revolution like Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark, she found herself estranged from her own peopleand betrayed by her white adversaries, who would murder her loved ones and eventually maim Nonhelema herself. Throughout her inspiring life, she had many deep and complex relationships, including with her daughter, Fani, who was an adopted white captive .

. . a pious and judgmental missionary, Zeisberger . .

. a series of passionate lovers . . . and, in a stunning creation of the Thoms, Justin Casea cowardly soldier transformed by the courage he saw in the female Indian leader.

Filled with the uncanny period detail and richly rendered drama that are Thom trademarks, Warrior Woman is a memorable novel of a remarkable personone willing to fight to avoid war, by turns tough and tender, whose heart was too big for the world she wished to tame. From the Hardcover edition.
