A tale of struggle between men and women, honor and betrayal, the laws of God and man. You'll find yourself empathizing with and revolted with the characters in this story.

Review Text

  • By Joan Oviatt on March 9, 2011

    Having read the book Jakie Creek, I received a sense of the times, people, and culture of this era in the Ozarks. Sadie (aka Sarah) Littrell, the Cherokee medicine woman sold to her husband, was mother to Jesse Littrell, my husband's grandfather. Great literature this book is not and doesn't try to be. It is disjointed historical facts, court records and the author/historian fictionally interpreting some of these known facts. It must have taken the historian, J.K. Phillips years to amass this collection of records and string them together in a meaningful way. Most of all, I see this book as a labor of love, a tribute to those who have come before, and an appreciation for the future.

    I found this to be a rather self centered, dull approach to trying to build the authors fragile ego. Knowing her and her story, not surprising she is self serving and the book shows it in the flatness of the story.
