Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blow for blow, blood for blood, a heart-thundering account of the outbreak of the Nez Perce War, by America's bestselling historical frontier novelist.

With gripping, authentic detail, CRIES FROM THE EARTH chronicles the lives of courageous men and women engaged in an ongoing chain of bloody skirmishes-- another breathtaking ride through a Western frontier rife with brutal conflict and astounding bravery.

By mid-1877, trouble in the Northwest is brewing like a foul broth. Ill will is growing between white settlers and the Non-Treaty bands of the Nez Perce. The American government is forcing the Indians from their homelands onto the reservation. Many go quietly, thinking more about their families than of the pride of their warriors. But for a few holdouts, there's no room for compromise. Their history, their heritage and their ancestors are buried beneath that land. Although severely outnumbered and outgunned, a few brave warriors will heed the call of...CRIES FROM THE EARTH.

Synopsis:

No one captures the glory, adventure, and drama of the courageous men and women who tamed the American West like award-winning, bestselling author Terry C. Johnston. His Plainsmen series brims with colorful characters, fierce battles, and compelling historical lore.
