Dawncrusher
This book is a fictionalized account of some descendents of two Catawba children who had been captured in the Carolinas and held as slaves in Virginia by Henry Clay- the grandfather of the famous statesman. Though at one time it was legal to enslave Indians in Virginia, changes in slave laws prior to their capture had made enslavement of any Indians who were not already enslaved illegal. There are court records that show Henry Clay named the children Chance and James and kept them and their descendents as slaves. This is the story of the legal struggles which their descendents went though to win their freedom through the courts. Fascinating story, but this book leaves much to be desired. The author uses historical documentation and tries to keep the story as realistic as possible- but for some bizarre reason- and she admits to this- she ends the story of one of Chance's descendents, upon receiving her freedom, being shot and killed by racist locals. That never happened. Instead of ending the book with truth- nobody is exactly sure what happened to her after she finally won her freedom- we get this. Why take a fascinating, little known, and entirely true piece of American history and do this with it? While I am not descended from the main character in this story, I am descended from another of Chance's descendents who won her freedom in the courts of Virginia, Hannah Findley, who appears as a character in this book (also in a fictionalized account). I am pleased that someone has taken the time to make this story known, but highly disappointed by the gratuitous fabrication of the dramatic and completely untrue ending of this book. I thank the author for her historical research and authenticity regarding many details of the story, and for bringing some of the story to light- but the made up ending of this story takes away from the historic reality and adds unneccesary turmoil. It is already a story full of real racism- we don't need the fabricated racial hatred and violence-based ending of this story. It isn't true by the author's own admission and cheapens a real story. Still, nobody else has told this story, and it is a story worth knowing. I recommend the book if only for that.

Very informative. I grew up smack dab in the area in which this story is set. Yet I was totally unaware of the issue of Indian slaves.

A riveting story of Virginia history never taught in school. I grew up in the area and knew nothing of the local history. I understand that this is a novel but there is still a lot of history told. I liked the book, it is a book you will not want to put down once you start reading.
