Riassunto: Daniel begins life inside a covered wagon beneath the limbs of an ancient birthing tree. He is strong of body and sensitive of mind, and cared for by his only parent, Melinda after his well-meaning but footloose father, Jacob, abandons them. Haunted by nightmarish events in his past and faced by a ruthless enemy, Daniel's mind is further taxed when he reaches manhood. He suffers an inability to choose between two attractive young women. One is a former classmate and music partner while the other is a lovely but spoiled, daughter of an influential man. A brown-eyed Cherokee woman who marries his friend, Seth, is abducted by kinsmen and returned to the tribal village. Seth follows her and they make their home among the Cherokees. As the War of 1812 rages on, the two friends meet again on the battlefield--one with life-changing news to deliver for the other.

Dall'autore: Knowing Daniel was inspired by a deep interest in the seldom visited events of the late 18th and the early 19th centuries. The War of 1812 is portrayed as it was although some of the main and secondary characters are based on the experience of others.  These other considerations prompted a weaving in of actual events: 

  • The existence of the birthing tree, outside the present city of McMinnville, TN, which still stands and spreads its giant branches under which pioneer women gave birth while their wagon trains were pausing for refitting;
  •  The oral history as told to me by part-Cherokee members of the elders of my family including the abduction of my great-great-great grandmother; 
  • The personal witnessing of an attempted kidnap of a baby and the reasons why a semi-deranged mother did it;  
  • The library and ancestry records of one Daniel West, who was a veteran of the War of 1812 whose wife left him after her first husband, presumed dead in a battle with Native Americans, showed up to reclaim his wife. Daniel's reaction to the personal tragedy was to carve himself a home inside a giant tree and to ride about the villages astride a white steer.
  • The customs and histories of  the Cherokees and other tribes such as the Creeks and Chickasaws and their chiefs.
