In Matt Braun's The Last Stand, it is the land of Five Civilized Tribes, stolen from its people by a Federal government determined to make Oklahoma the 46th state. Chitto Starr, a full-blood Cherokee, will not go gently into the night. Instead, Chitto ignites an armed rebellion―and brings an honest , determined lawman onto his trail. For Deputy U.S. Marshal Owen McLain, hunting down Starr and his rebels is the last job he wants―and the one he has to do right, or die. Now, the two men are locked in a duel of cunning and violence on a tragic, history-scarred land. And before one of them dies, they must each make a harrowing journey of honor, courage, and war.
