Set in America’s tumultuous 1800s, Shadow of an Indian Star is a masterful blend of historical fact and rich folklore chronicling three generations of a feuding pioneer family as they endure hardship, tragedy, romance and corruption in the epic struggle to re-establish a nation.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!

In 1825, 16-year-old Smith Paul abandons his North Carolina family and sets out on an extraordinary journey that brings him face-to-face with adversity, injustice, true kinship, and passion.

Defined by his experiences, Smith’s righteous indignation and stubborn determination catapult him into a respected position of prominence among the Chickasaw people at the most turbulent time in their history. Battling barbarous conditions, Smith eventually prospers and grows even more influential as he and his Chickasaw bride Ala-Teecha raise a family, build a thriving community, and help the tribe reestablish itself in Indian Territory.

After a tragic loss, Smith’s half-breed son adopts a renegade lifestyle that eventually lands him behind bars where his eyes are opened to the greed of a powerful government.  Once set free, the impassioned Sam Paul purposes to prevent the whites’ encroachment onto tribal lands and rises to political power despite his treacherous past.

Sam’s charisma is lost on his own son Joe, whose seething anger and jealousy drives him to seduce the only woman his father ever loved.  A bitter feud ignites between the two men.  When octogenarian Smith Paul steps in to abate the hostility, the results prove fatal.
