The Executions Overview
From an award-winning author and Choctaw storyteller comes a riveting tale set in turn-of-the-century Indian Territory.
Who would show up for their own execution?
It's 1892, Indian Territory. A war is brewing in the Choctaw Nation as two political parties fight out issues of old and new ways. Caught in the middle is eighteen-year-old Ruth Ann, a Choctaw who doesn't want to see her family killed.
In a small but booming pre-statehood town, her family owns a controversial newspaper, the Choctaw Tribune. Ruth Ann wants to help spread the word about critical issues but there is danger for a female reporter on all fronts—socially, politically, even physically.
But what is truly worth dying for? This quest leads Ruth Ann and her brother Matthew, the stubborn editor of the fledgling Choctaw Tribune, to old Choctaw ways at the farm of a condemned murderer. It also brings them to head on clashes with leading townsmen who want their reports silenced no matter what.
More killings are ahead. Who will survive to know the truth? Will truth survive?
The Executions is a story of friendship, faith, and family in a gritty western setting with characters that fight for truth against all odds.

The Choctaw Tribune series follows the journey of a fictional Choctaw family as they encounter the real events and history in Indian Territory before Oklahoma became a state. A historical fiction series with a Western flare, these Native stories explore racial, political, spiritual, and social issues in the old Choctaw Nation—and beyond.
"Among the many pleasures of Sarah Elisabeth's writing are her attention to character, language, and period detail. In The Executions, a story grounded in history and the complexities of pre-statehood Oklahoma, she brings to life, with great heart, the compelling mix of cultures, faith, and political intrigue in the old Choctaw Nation. An intriguing read."—Rilla Askew, author of The Mercy Seat

Before I read The Executions, I had read some reviews which had me wondering if this one would be something I'd like, reviews from people whose opinions I trust. It's True, so The Executions stayed on my "TBR Someday".
