In The Peace Chief, one young Cherokee must be reborn to lead his people through the difficult early days of sixteenth-century European expansion into America. Conley tells the story of Young Puppy, a member of the Long Hair Clan who mistakenly kills his best friend, Asquani. To avoid being killed--the usual remedy for restoring balance between the two clans--Young Puppy flees to the sanctuary of Kituwah, where, after a year in exile, his offense will be forgiven. Spiritually reborn as Comes Back to Life, he becomes the ceremonial leader of his people: the Peace Chief.

From the Publisher:

Praise for Robert J. Conley:

"Robert J. Conley is in the ranks of N. Scott Momaday, Louise Erdrich, James Welch, and W.P. Kinsella as an interpreter of many facets of the Native-American experience." --Joseph C. Porter, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Robert J. Conley's Mountain Windsong deserves to become an American classic. Conley takes the grim facts of our 'Manifest Destiny' and makes them come alive in a novel that is beautiful and heartwarming as well as tragic." --Tony Hillerman

"As the tragic tale unfolds, the novel acquires power and resonance and the reader cannot fail to be moved by Conley's insights into Cherokee history and culture." --Publishers Weekly on Mountain Windsong

"An unforgettable adventure of love, death, and nature the entices you with each page." --Max Evans, author of The Rounders, on War Woman

"The Cherokee Nation was never more vividly brought to life than in this outstanding novel." --Jory Sherman, author of The South Platte, on Nickajack

"Conley has shaped a touching, powerful vision of Indian life past and present, of abiding love, and of a national disgrace." --Kirkus Reviews on Mountain Windsong

"A gripping, convincingly imagined historical... War Woman's life is told with page-turning verve, as Conley uses his extensive historical knowledge of Cherokee life and culture to spin a lively, informed piece of speculative history." --Publishers Weekly on War Woman
