The Dying Tree
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Dying Tree
The peace treaty between the Indians and the white men is in a state of collapse.
With the shining metal rails of the railroad pushing steel into the heart of Indian territory, the tenuous peace agreement hangs on a knife edge.
The Indians have been sold nothing but lies, and their anger at the constant encroachment upon their lands is stronger than ever.
Whilst the chiefs attempt to keep the peace, the younger members of the tribe are hungry for revenge.
Every year the number of Indian warriors slaughtered by the white settlers increases and the time has come to make a stand.
But nothing is going to stop the ruthless railroad boss, Lamont, from getting what he wants.
Knowing full well that lucrative gold mines lie in the heart of Indian territory, Lamont is just waiting for an opportunity to start a war to serve his own greed and purpose.
And he doesn’t have to wait long.
When a young Sioux warrior steals some horses from Lamont’s settlement, it provides the perfect excuse to start a full-blown war against the Indians.
The normally peaceful lands explode into violent action, with Lamont determined to wipe out the Indians once and for all.
It’s not long before the sun-scorched grass of the prairie is stained with the blood of Indians and white men alike.
But with a war that is destined to last for years, will the prospect of peace remain but a distant memory?
The Dying Tree is a dramatic, action-filled western that is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
