Synopsis: In 1829, Cherokee slave-owner Starr Night and his band of Songbirds lose their thriving Tennessee coalmine to sabotage. The loss is the first in a chain of events spanning more than a decade, ending with the band being forced to move to the Oklahoma Indian Territory, taking their assembly of black slaves with them. Betrayed by the Indians, Tolliver, the overseer, vows to keep his family united and to free them from the evil bonds of slavery. But will Tolliver’s resolve and the family ties that bind be strong enough to keep his family together, or will he lose them all as he embarks with the Indians along the rugged Trail of Tears? Based against the backdrop of the Cherokee’s forced relocation during the 1830s, Warrior: The Morgantown Songbirds is a one-of-a-kind historical Western love story by author D.E. Mitchell that tackles loyalty, family and love. Through the trials and tribulations faced during this winding tale of non-stop adventure, one lesson remains; love prevails even in the worst of times.
