Our Eternal Curse Another Tribe by Simon Rumney

Another Tribe (Our Eternal Curse II)Another Tribe by Simon Rumney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Our Eternal Curse: Another Tribe by Simon Rumney is exceptional historical fiction. The story is focused on Julii, a Tennessee Indian, who is portrayed realistically as dealing with the "white man's world". It's easy to root for Julii in this novel, which is full of suspense and drama. That an Indian woman is portrayed as a blockade runner for the Confederate army is fascinating reading and compelling reading. For the reader that wants to learn more about this era, this is the book from which to start on that journey. This book is sort of like uncharted territory and written from a great perspective. It's great to see a strong representation of an Indian female lead character, who overcomes great levels of disadvantage along with the ever present prejudice and preconceived ideas of the time. Highly recommended reading for history buffs and those who love a little mystery and suspense as well.
