Uncle Jay stood up. ?Yup, I do, Tom. I think Mr. O?Neil sent two of his guys here yesterday to stake out you and your land. They came back out here before dawn and started this fire. Yup, I have no doubt, but proving it will be a challenge because we are up against the big boys.? The Land Grab is the story of Alfred Swallow and his family as they fend off attempts to take their land. Alfred is eleven years old and has many responsibilities not expected of a young boy. His Lalá (grandfather) has instilled in his grandson many Lakota traditions, which Alfred respects, although at times he struggles to understand the messages they convey. Young Alfred draws from his tradition when an unscrupulous US land agent, who knows the value of the family?s land, is determined to grab their land with intimidation and force. The family and their neighbors band together to stop the unlawful actions, but can they stop a determined criminal?
