The Mountain Writers meet at Blue Ridge Books each month. Their meetings are open to the public. Nadia will discuss her historical research for "A Demand of Blood." Using first-hand accounts from British Indian agents, Cherokee headmen, and colonial militia, "A Demand of Blood" presents a war fought in the shadows of the American Revolution. "A Demand of Blood" introduces for the first time in a historical narrative the legendary Cherokee war chief Dragging Canoe who deftly navigated his way through treachery and betrayal, and led the charge to regain sovereignty over Cherokee land.
