Riding Out the Storm: 19th Century Chickasaw Governors, Their Lives and Intellectual Legacy


Morgan profiles the lives of three nineteenth-century Chickasaw governors—Cyrus Harris, Winchester Colbert, and William L. Byrd. Revealing the three leaders not merely as historic politicians, but as human beings, Morgan portrays their personal and political lives against literary backdrops relating directly to their experiences—Cyrus Harris with his northern Mississippi neighbors, the Faulkners; Civil War governor Winchester Colbert with Native American literature about war; and William L. Byrd with his great-grandniece Jodi A. Byrd’s twenty-first-century indigenous critiques of colonialism.
