"...But maybe someday when we've learned, the Cherokee Nation will return"                             The Raiders

The Bobcat: 1898 Indian Territory- Will Firemaker is a Cherokee blacksmith who is finding out that the ancient legends of the Tribe are true, and they are leading him to a world he never could have imagined 

Chapter 3:

Will Firemaker has been chosen as a Guardian of his people and a Defender of the common good. His newly formed persona as The Bobcat is going to be tested by those who would prey upon others in this expanding frontier. Friendship will drive him to risk life and limb in an attempt to protect his neighbor's property and thwart foul plans.

An Outlaw rides into town bringing worry and speculation about his intentions. Sheriff Whitekiller and his Deputies are called upon to investigate a crime that has the lawmen baffled. Certain that they may have the culprits within their grasp, they quickly find that things are not always as they appear.

        Elijah Venables once again shows that he is a man to be feared as he maneuvers to gain control of things that he longs to possess, but are presently beyond his grasp. The Bobcat must intervene to help maintain the balance of power in Cherokee County. 

Unexpected Allies appear to aid Will with his newly ordained task of assuming the role that The Great Cat had occupied for so many years
