People of the Same Sun
The story takes place in the late 1600's in what is now known as Pennsylvania. At the time there were many wars between the Iroquois and the Leni-Lenape Indians. As the settlers were starting to move westward, they added to the conflict over land. Being the sole survivor of an attack on his tribe, a young Iroquois warrior named Golden Eye seeks revenge against the white men that raided his village. During his quest, he discovers a young Indian woman from the Leni-Lenape tribe named Little Eagle, shot and lying by the river bank. Unaware that she is Leni-Lenape, he helps her survive her wounds. She was shot while trying to escape some white men that took her away from her tribe a few years earlier. Against all odds, the two of them start a new settlement open to all that wish to live in peace.
