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.SLAVERS, RUM, AND CRYSTAL CHANDELIERS: Book Ten of the Tuckaseegee ChroniclesIn Book Ten, slaver dealers John Elliott and Yellow Jacket threaten Mairy at the MacNeill Settlement- Ruary becomes involved in an illegal whisky trade leading to great misfortune for his cousin and partner Pinckney MacDougall- Redwing gives birth to baby Walahu- a large contingent of Cherokee leaders travel to Williamsburg, Commonwealth of Virginia, to meet Governor Robert Dinwiddie, whereupon many of the Cherokee see firsthand a world of British elegance and military power that heretofore they had only heard about- and returning home to Cowee Town, Joe Buck Cheatham faces an excruciating turn of events that changes his life forever.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.
