Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "No one weaves a tribal story quite like Robert Conley. Conley's books are entertaining, colorful, and chock-full of tribal history and culture."--Wilma P. Mankiller, former Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation

Few writers portray Native American life and history as richly, authentically, and insightfully as Robert J. Conley, an important voice of the Cherokee past. The novels in his Real People series combine powerful characters, gripping plots, and vivid descriptions of tradition and mythology to preserve Cherokee culture and history.

The sixth volume of the Real People series, The Dark Island is the story of Asquani, the son of an escaped slave and a Spaniard. Asquani must decide whether to join the Spaniards or defend the Cherokee homeland.
