9780595474554: Light a Distant Fire

Threatened with forced removal from their Florida homeland, the Seminole and Miccosukee Indians took up arms. Using alligator-infested swamps to their advantage, they fought the U.S. Army to a standstill.Unable to win militarily, General Thomas Jesup captured his enemies under flags of truce. With most of their people transported west, fewer than a hundred remained hidden in the heart of the Everglades, members of the only tribe never to surrender. " powerfully recreates the mid-19th century Seminole Indian Wars and the life of Osceola, who courageously led his people against unjust U.S. government policies."-Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap:

no illusions that the struggle would be an easy one. But after years of humbly acquiescing to the white men's demands, he was ready to fight no matter what the cost. The young men would have the chance to earn war honors. Their women would have reason to be proud of them again.
When "Old Man" Jackson declared war on the Seminole, he never envisioned battling a people who would become symbols of courage, loyalty, and patriotism. Led by the mighty warrior Osceola and witnessed by his beloved daughter Little Warrior, they were men and women fighting an unjust war of greed and aggression -- and the bonds of love and rebellion that united them would thrust them into the heart of a conflict that would change the world and their lives forever.
"Robson is especially good at detailing the daily life of the 19th Century Seminoles and her Osceola is a charismatic and proud hero." -- The Orlando Sentinel

About the Author:

Osceola has been Lucia St. Clair Robson?s hero since fourth grade. She went on to become a Peace Corps Volunteer, a teacher and librarian. After her first novel, Ride the Wind, appeared on New York Times bestseller list, she quit her day job. She resides in a beguiling riverside community in Maryland.
