Danny is the son of a son of a frontiersman who settled in the American West in what came to be called Indian Territory, before the government under President Andrew Jackson assigned portions of the land to the Five Civilized Tribes, the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw, and Seminole Indians. They were called civilized because they lived like white men, but they were dislocated by people moving into their ancestral homes after the Civil War. The land assigned to the Choctaw was land that the Duncan family had farmed for two generations. The Duncan family didn’t want to move, but to get a clear title to the land they had to buy it. They had no money, so they borrowed money from a bank. They paid all but the last payment, and on the day the payment was due, Danny took their last three cows into town and sold them for enough to make the payment. The banker didn’t want the payment; he wanted the land, so while Danny was away selling the cows, the sheriff burned the house with Danny’s parents still in it. Danny tried to rescue them, but the sheriff’s deputies knocked him unconscious and left him for dead also. But as fate would have it, he survived and set out to avenge the murder of his parents. But his attempt at restitution turned him into an outlaw.
Can Danny find a way to clear his name and restore his right to the land?
