A realistic historical piece, this novel is fraught with danger and heartbreak, but buoyed by romance and the hope for survival into future generations. A meticulously researched, exhaustive look at the uneasy coexistence of early settlers and native populations, the novel fully immerses the reader in a foreign world.

Historical fiction buffs especially will want to know what happens to the MacNeills and the Cherokees in the next installment. The prose is flawless and the characters are robust and believable. Impressive.”About the TUCKASEEGEE CHRONICLESDevastated by Scotland’s failed uprising against England in 1745, exiled highland warrior Ruary MacNeill transports his wife Elspeth, two children, and three orphaned nephews to America to operate a trading post and horse-breeding enterprise in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Southern Appalachian heartland of the large and powerful Cherokee Nation.Set in America’s first frontier during the French and Indian War, the TUCKASEEGEE CHRONICLES (1750-1764) are a long series of short novels, a multigenerational saga following the Scottish MacNeills as they interact with the Cherokee during a time of political upheaval when the Cherokee Nation is at war with other Indian tribes and has become a pawn in the conflict between England and France for control of the Atlantic seaboard.The MacNeills gradually discover that Cherokee clans are not unlike Scottish clans, both culturally and spiritually, and that friendship, love, and loyalty can cross cultural and racial boundaries.MOON OF THE ENGLISHMAN’S GOD: Book Seventeen of the Tuckaseegee Chronicles continues the saga of the MacNeills and their Cherokee friends and neighbors in the Tuckaseegee River Valley.

Joe Buck Cheatham and Mairy MacNeill build a house and invite friends from far and near to Am Braighe for their wedding and house warming- the friendship between Moses Dubh and Ooskellokih grows- a mysterious fire destroys the Rocky Branch Mercantile and Horse Stamp- the English settlement at Long Canes Creek is attacked by Middle Town Cherokee warriors in violation of the Saluda Treaty- the Cherokee have divided opinions about Fort Loudoun, built by the English in the Cherokee Overhills and garrisoned by English soldiers- and everyone celebrates the Twelve Days of Christmas at Am Braighe.About the AuthorBetty Cloer Wallace is a tree farmer in Western North Carolina and a former teacher of writing and literature at a North Carolina community college that serves the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the largest concentration of Scottish descendants outside of Scotland.

Her British ancestors settled in the Great Smoky Mountains in the 1700s and intermingled with the Cherokee who, along with their predecessors, have populated the region for thousands of years.A former school district superintendent and principal in North Carolina and Alaska, Wallace spent ten years in Eskimo villages in the Alaskan Arctic—Bering Strait, North Slope, and Northwest Arctic—which greatly influenced her interest in human migration patterns and how indigenous populations are impacted by immigrant cultures.
