Big Mary

by

Dustin Street


At four o’clock in the afternoon on September 13, 1916, in a muddy train yard in Erwin, Tennessee, roustabouts with Sparks World-Famous Shows marched a five-ton elephant named Mary to the instrument of her demise – a large crane designed to lift freight and rail cars for the Clinchfield Railroad. Just twenty-four hours earlier, Mary had been found guilty of murdering the tour’s new elephant under-keeper, Walter “Red” Eldridge. It’s a story that the citizens of Erwin, and beyond, have heard since they were old enough to sit on a grandparent’s lap. But Mary’s tale is much more than people think they know. She was a performer. A friend. A child. She was smart, and funny, and courageous. She was Big Mary. (Note: This story, as it appears on UPLITERATE, is for promotional purposes only.

Deep in the forests of Southern Appalachia, fifteen year-old Silas Vanover ventures down from his mountain colony to trade. His people are a mysterious group of unknown origins, and while myths and folklore abound, they are labeled pejoratively with one word: Melungeons. Passing off as a member of an Indian tribe, Silas is thrilled at possibly making a life for himself as a trader among the white settlers. However, his optimisms are crushed by his family’s horror stories of lynchings, excommunication, and worse--until he meets Amadahy Kingfisher, a Cherokee girl who notices how out of place he is in town but extends kindness and curiosity toward him. The two make a deal to befriend to one another for their own protection among the hostile European frontiersmen, and their encounter makes Silas hopeful that his people’s haunted memories are scarred legends of the past. He was wrong, and becomes trapped in the mire of pioneer life. He must fight for his home, his identity, and his place among the people of East Tennessee, forming alliances with the white settlers and the remaining Cherokees of the area while trying to stay true to his own people. In the end, he must decide where his heart and loyalties lie during the cusp of what will later be known as The Trail of Tears.
