War Woman is a fictional character who could have been a real person for all we know. It is the story of her life as a woman of prominence in the Cherokee tribe from 1580 to 1654. She led the people of her village and the villages around her in their interaction with first the Spanish from Florida, then the English from Jamestown. The events themselves are not supported by any written history, but follow the Cherokee history. traditions and culture closely. Conley, himself a member of the Cherokee tribe, tells an excellent story and at the same time, educates some about the Cherokee culture.

I absolutely loved this book and couldn't bring myself to put it down for long while I was reading it. I'm a big fan of historical fiction and I feel this book is a great example. Being a wilderness instructor in SC, we used to camp at a site called War Woman and so that is how the title was of interest to me in the first place. This book goes into great detail of War Woman's life and I feel does a good job of not glorifying her as well as demonizing her. Conley writes about Native Americans without bias and is very descriptive which allowed for me to visualize the novel while reading it. I'm looking forward to reading more of "The Real People" series in the future.
