The two worlds of Austin Bullock collide with a shock when Chief Emory Sees the Water dies mysteriously in Lost Man Marsh, part of the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation in the Big Thicket of East Texas.
By blood, bone and history, Austin Bullock is now the Chief of his Nation, responsible for maintaining the welfare of his people. By choice, he left the reservation years before to teach high school history, to coach basketball in the white man's school and to seek an identity apart from his Native American heritage. Now the song of the Tie-Snake, the creature which lives in the dark waters of the swamp, calls Austin Bullock to his mission, while someone from outside the Nation has sinister plans for the people who live there. Murder, tribal myth and legend, and the contemporary realities of greed and violence force Austin Bullock to make choices he has struggled to avoid.
