Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory
Christmas at Uncle Preston's ranch sounds delightful to Ruth Ann Teller, who is ready for a break from the Choctaw Tribune newspaper and the hard times they’ve endured. Namely, nearly losing her brother to a gunman.
But tension follows them to the ranch with a flooded Red River, quicksand, and a surprise Christmas present that ties the whole family together.

Who would show up for their own execution?
It’s 1892, Indian Territory. A war is brewing in the Choctaw Nation as two political parties fight out issues of old and new ways. Caught in the middle is eighteen-year-old Ruth Ann, a Choctaw who doesn’t want to see her family harmed.
In a small but booming pre-statehood town, her brother owns a controversial newspaper, the Choctaw Tribune. Ruth Ann wants to help spread the word about critical issues but there is danger for a female reporter on all fronts—socially, politically, even physically.
But what is truly worth dying for? This quest leads Ruth Ann and her brother Matthew, the stubborn editor of the fledgling Choctaw Tribune, to old Choctaw ways at the farm of a condemned murderer. It also brings them to head on clashes with leading townsmen who want their reports silenced no matter what.
More killings are ahead. Who will survive to know the truth? Will truth survive?
From an award-winning author and Choctaw storyteller comes riveting tales set in turn-of-the-century Indian Territory. Inside the Choctaw Tribune series are stories of friendship, faith, and family in a gritty 1890s setting with characters that fight for truth against all odds.
