In a time when English settlers strengthened their foothold in the New World and spread out across the lands of Tsenacommacah, the First People who belonged to the land fought for the right to survive. Thousands of brave warriors battled the intrusion in those pivotal years and lost their lives to the cause, yet their spirits could not be conquered. Cockacoeske is a young woman born to the bloodlines of legendary leaders. She has every reason to command her warriors to rise up against the English – yet she chooses a different path to ensure the survival of her people.
When her husband is betrayed by the English and killed at the Battle of Bloody Run, young Cockacoeske assumes the role of Queen of the Pamunkey. Her inexperience could destroy what is left of the ailing Pamunkey people; her ties to the English through her lover and young son make her appear weak. In a world overrun by English outsiders with an insatiable thirst for more land and dominance, she rises up to lead her people and restore the glory of what was once the mighty Powhatan Empire. This is the story of a woman who defied the constraints of her time during her thirty-year reign as Queen of the Pamunkey, and forever left her mark in the archives of history.
