About the Book

320 Pages

Horror fans will get their thrills in this collection — from werewolves to vampires to zombies — all the time-worn horror baddies are there. But so are predators of a distinctly American variety — the horrors of empire, of intimate partner violence, of dispossession. Following one extended Cherokee family across the centuries, from the tribe’s homelands in Georgia in the 1830s to World War I, the Vietnam War, our own present and well into the future, each story delivers a slice of a particular time period that will leave readers longing for more.
