about this book: In the 1800s the proximity of the railroad to a town could make or break it. The fight between two town in eastern Oregon produced friction that lingered until the 20th century. The civil way freed the slaves but did little to relieve tension between white settlers and the Indians who felt cheated. The Metis in Canada fared no better than their counterparts in the United States. The underlying disenfranchisement of the native people is as central to the times and the expansion of those displaced by the Civil War. So you have Two Indians and a Dead Man.
Based on a tumultuous situation in Eastern Oregon which inflamed passions from the 1880s well into the 20th Century. The true story of two rival towns in the American Old West underlies a tale of greed, robbery and murder.

James Robertson fought on the wrong side in the Civil War. In the end, his choice will cost the young doctor his family and home in New Orleans. A man he served with in the Union Army is willing to help James relocate to Eastern Oregon. The Oregon Trail has too many people willing to categorize a man by his accent. James takes to the mountains to carve his own path.

Two Fingers McCracken traveled to the valley of the Grande Ronde with his daughter. Wounded, he needs help to get his kidnapped girl back. Once he has her, the Metis plans to return to Canada. Two Fingers encounters James at the head of a draw leading into the valley. Will the man from Louisiana give McCracken the help he needs to get Emmalee back?
