Puget Sound Indian War setting, 1855-56.
"Douglas Bond’s latest historical novel is a compelling and indispensable addition to a lesser-known chapter in American history. Bond’s fresh and engaging portrayal of the tragic clash of cultures in the Puget Sound Indian Wars of 1855-56 not only confronts today’s cultural and racial tensions but provides hope for the future. Essential reading for every student of American history.” Larry Faulk, M.P.A., Former Washington State Senator
"Standing ovation! Fantastic job weaving the history, the flora and fauna, the people and the pathos of the time. Brilliant job painting Noclas and his true love for the Word and expression of the gospel. Not forced or pedantic, just natural and as appealing as firelight." Mary Lynn Spear, Editor/proofreader
"I loved Douglas Bond's latest book, The Battle of Seattle, a fast moving, charming book viewed from all sides of the historical participants. Readers won't even realize they are learning true history--wonderful for young adults, truly for any age. ...delightful book, difficult to put down." Patricia Ryan, Public Librarian
