This is the 2nd edition of the novel by this author, now re-edited and formatted to sell at a more affordable price. Based historically on the 75 year old dispute between Indian people and the Wisconsin government over ownership of the famous 15,000 acre Chippewa Flowage, SIEGE AT OJIBWA is a book whose focus is on the state of Native and non-Native relations in America today. Set in the lush north woods of the Lac Court Oreilles Ojibwa Reservation, the novel follows the journey of James Longley, an Illinois photographer, whose love affair with Lee (Indian name "Hummingbird"), makes him a reluctant participant in the explosive conflict over modern day treaty rights. While the novel's 35 chapters wind their way through tragic love, cultural clash, mythic dreams, political realities, bigotry and psychotic violence, its primary view is of the land in question-its wildlife, its beauty, its wonder, and its fragility.
