Book of the Week - Save 30%!
Watermark's Book of the Week is Blood Moon by John Sedgwick.
In the tradition of major works of Native American history like Empire of the Summer Moon and The Heart of Everything That Is, John Sedgwick's Blood Moon is a sweeping epic of American history that will do for the Cherokee what those books did for the Comanche and the Sioux.
This major work of Native American history reveals one of the greatest rivalries and untold stories of the nineteenth century, between two chiefs whose hatred for one another led to war, forced migration and, ultimately, left a proud nation in tatters. It is the first book to link two cornerstone episodes of 19th century American history - the Trail of Tears and the Civil War - through a bloody conflict between two rival Cherokee chiefs that would ultimately span 100 years. What began as a political dispute between two friends led to a divide in the Cherokee nation and then exploded when the two factions sided against each other in the War Between the States. It is, as the author says, "a nonfiction Gone with the Wind for the Cherokee:" a story of land, pride, honor, and loss that forms much of the country's mythic past today.
