About this author
By 1,250 AD the Great Mound of Cahokia on the Mississippi River was the center of the largest North American empire, populated more densely than the 13th-century London. A hundred years later the Great Mound lay abandoned.
“The Cahokian” is a historical novel, based on the final years of that empire.
The chief warlord of Cahokia - a magnificent center of the Mississippians - is embroiled in a dangerous political conspiracy. An attempt to escape the consequences brings him northwards, up the O-hi-o River and into the lands of the powerful League of the Iroquois, where his life takes an unexpected turn.
