Creek Mary's BloodeBook - 2012
The remarkable saga of Creek Indian Mary Musgrove and her descendants, whose lives parallel the American story through two momentous centuries In Creek Mary’s Blood, Dee Brown fictionalizes the astonishing true story of Mary Musgrove—born in 1700 to a Creek tribal chief—and five generations of her family. By tracing her struggles with colonists in Georgia, and then the lives of her two sons (one born to a white trader and the other to a Cherokee warrior), Brown’s novel creates a gripping panorama of the American Indian experience in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His narrative spans colonial rebellion, the Trail of Tears, and the Civil War—in which Mary’s descendants fought on both sides of the conflict. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
