Item Description...
Late Nineteenth Century Land Rush 1889. Cherokee Rose and police chief Britt Claiborne are forced onto reservations along with their descendants and the five "civilized" tribes in the Oklahoma District. The U.S. government has told them that because of its rich, productive soil and sufficient water supply, the Oklahoma District is now white man's land of promise . With indescribable sadness and anger, the Indians look on as thousands of prospective settlers and their families enter the district and claim 160-acre sections of land in the Oklahoma land rush. This third book in the A Place to Call Home series masterfully includes the compelling stories of three white prospective-settler families introduced in Bright Are the Stars : Craig and Gloria Parker; widow Martha Ackerman with her parents and three children; and Lee and Kathy Belden with their two sons.

Publishers Description
Britt Clairborne, United Cherokee Nation Chief of Police, and his sweet wife, Cherokee Rose, face challenging times. It's 1889, and the Cherokees are being moved onto reservations within the Oklahoma District. The remainder of the land promised to them decades ago is being opened for white settlers to homestead. Of course, the Cherokees are unhappy. Some are outraged and want to stand and fight-despite Britt's warning that they will be punished swiftly and severely by the U.S. Army.
Before long, white settlers converge from all directions. Lee and Kathy Belden and their two children come from Texas, where they lost their farm after years of drought. Martha Ackerman, newly widowed, arrives from Kansas with her three young children and her parents. Craig Parker, fresh out of prison and cleared of a bank robbery he didn't commit, travels with his loyal wife, Gloria, from Missouri. And so many others. They all come for land and a new beginning, yet face so much that is unexpected: fraudulent sooners, funnel clouds, rattlesnakes, even oil. And of course, unexpected kindness and God's provision.
Will the Cherokees and the settlers all find a home in the land of promise? And perhaps a spiritual home as well?

superb historical fiction  Mar 24, 2007
Five decades since the Trail of Tears killed many of them (see CHEROKEE ROSE), the Cherokee people are overall happy with their land in Indian Territory. However, to the chagrin of Indian Territory Police Chief Brit Claiborne, a quarter Cherokee, President Harrison has decided to move the People again this time onto "reservations" in a small relatively useless part of the Oklahoma Territory. Brit knows that this forced mini Trail of Tars will cause major trouble because as the Indians are pushed out, white settlers will come in a land rush, each claiming 160 acres in the unassigned lands.

He explains his fears to his beloved wife Cherokee Rose (see BRIGHT ARE THE STARS). Though many of the displaced Indians go peacefully, some are outraged such as the Osage who attack a wagon train that include three generations of Bakers; the military arrive in time to save the party. Brit tries to keep everyone safe regardless of ethnicity and because of this becomes a target from both sides as some Cherokee claim he sold them out while the whites demand he do his job to hunt down the renegades. The southwest has become a hot spot of injustice as neither side's moderates can be heard above the noise of the extremists willing to commit ethnic cleansing because the Oklahoma District has become THE LAND OF PROMISE for the whites and the land of sorrow for the Indians.

The final tale in the Lacey's "A Place to call Home" trilogy is a superb historical fiction story that looks at the late ninetieth century land rush that caused heartbreak for both races. The key to this saga is that Indians and whites are treated with respect by the authors who also do not hide from the atrocities that occurred. This is a deep inspirational historical that shows even at life's darkest; hope and faith in the promise of the Lord enable people to seek the light of salvation.
