The Battle of Seattle

The Battle of Seattle

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
It's 1855 in the Pacific Northwest, and hostility between white settlers and native tribes is rising quickly, leading to deaths on both sides. As tensions mount, young William Tidd joins Charles Eaton's Rangers on a mission to hunt down Chief Leschi of the Nisqually. If they can stop him, they may be able to end the bloodshed before it gets worse . . . but not everyone wants peace with the enemy. Is all-out war inevitable?
Through skirmishes, raids, close calls, and betrayal - William's assumptions, beliefs, courage, and friendships will all be challenged in a few breakneck weeks.

The Heroes & History Series takes you on epic journeys through turbulent times in history. Douglas Bond gives flesh and blood to heroes as they face war, intrigue, betrayal, loss - and triumph. Other books in the series cover the Roman era (Hostage Lands), the Middle Ages (Hand of Vengeance), and the Reformation (Hammer of the Huguenots).

"Bond's latest historical novel is a compelling and indispensable addition to a lesser-known chapter in American history. Bond's fresh and engaging portrayal of the tragic clash of cultures in the Puget Sound Indian Wars of 1855 - 56 not only confronts today's cultural and racial tensions but also provides hope for the future. Essential reading for every student of American history."
- Larry Faulk, Former Washington State Senator

"Readers won't even realize they are learning true history - wonderful for young adults, truly for any age. . . . Delightful book, difficult to put down."
- Patricia Ryan, Public Librarian
