    One thought on “Ned Christie's War”

    1. This is a historical novel; Ned Christie was real and this is a fairly accurate story of his adult life. He was a Cherokee Indian and an activist on behalf of the Cherokee Nation. The story takes place in the Cherokee Nation section of pre-statehood Oklahoma. He was an elected member of the Cherokee Nation senate and while attending a senate meeting he was falsely accusing of killing a Deputy U.S. Marshall. His "War" begins as he successfully resists arrest for four years and the history books r [...]

    2. Ned Christie may very well be more famous now than he was when he was alive.This version of the story has Councilman Christie framed for a murder he didn't commit because he was a political thorn in the side of those wishing to destroy the Cherokee Nation with immigration.Deputies are sent to arrest him, and Christie kills them in self defense. He builds his famous fort, and is eventually killed himself.This is a pretty good version with the exception of the needless epilogue.

    3. I loved this book. I had read another book about the same historical story, and this was a new perspective. It's historical fiction, a peek into Native America when the land was being grabbed up by white settlers and the tribes were being displaced, and white man's justice wasn't very just for Ned Christie.

    4. for what its worth, the title is not misleading if taken literally. its all about firing guns. the story offers no real insight. the epilogue is even about a character that had a minor role and its not interesting and adds absolutely nada. wtf?

    5. I always enjoy reading Conley's work. A true historian. That being said, the reader must remember that this book is fiction.
