The Executions by Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer Book Summary

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?

1892, Indian Territory. A war brews in the Choctaw Nation as two political parties grapple between old tradition and evolving issues—with eighteen-year-old Choctaw Ruth Ann Teller caught in the middle.

In a small but booming pre-statehood town, Ruth Ann's mixed blood family owns a controversial newspaper, the Choctaw Tribune, infamous for its dedication to unbiased truth. 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 is the truth worth dying for? When this quest leads Ruth Ann and her brother Matthew, the stubborn editor of the fledgling Choctaw Tribune, to the farm of a condemned murderer, it also brings them to head on clashes with leading townsmen who want their reports about what really happened silenced no matter what.
With the execution fast approaching, truth itself is on the line. When the dust has settled, who will survive to know the truth? And can the truth itself survive when all else is lost?

The Executions is a story of friendship, faith, and family in a gritty western setting with characters that fight for truth against all odds.

"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

The ExecutionsA well told historical novel from a source not often credited. Ladies points of view, and religious story angles were to few.
