Chief William McIntosh

Chief William McIntosh

This biography of one of history’s most villainized figures is lovingly written and researched by Chief William’s descendant, Billie Jane McIntosh.

“Billie Jane McIntosh combines accuracy of history and immediacy of fiction to relate the life of her ancestor, a warrior, diplomat, and selfless leader of his Native nation. In that bitter time of dispossession known as Indian Removal when others lost hope, Chief McIntosh believed in a future where his people would both survive and thrive.”

— Joseph Bruchac, author of Our Stories Remember

“One of the most misunderstood and maligned figures of early United States history is Chief William McIntosh. Historian descendent Billie Jane McIntosh recounts Chief McIntosh’s story in balanced detail with solid research and vivid creativity.”

— Gary L. McIntosh, PhD, professor of leadership, Biola University, La Mirada, CA

“McIntosh brings to life historical facts, harnessing the clash of civilizations to move the personal story of William McIntosh forward with anticipation and drama and to show inner tensions within characters caught up in this historic time of transition.”

— Margery Bouris, officer with the Friends of McIntosh Reserve, Inc.

“Billie Jane McIntosh offers a unique historical perspective on an important family and a period of time. The appendices are a plus in understanding the family tree, treaties, and laws of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.”

— Tamara M. Elder, author and Curator Research Division, Oklahoma History Center

“Imagine Creek life during the tumultuous period of treaty making and removal, written as if you were a participant in the unfolding history. McIntosh quickly draws you in with a masterfully crafted story.”

— James R. Floyd, Muscogee (Creek) Nation
