Nebraska: The Omaha Claim Club

Gertrude Wiley was fed up with the Omaha Claim Club. She understood its benefits and origins, but in 1860 it looked more like a handful of greedy rich men who wanted to keep everything for themselves than an organization that cared for the community. She generally tolerated their oppressive ways — until her nephew became their target and Gertrude stepped forward and refused to be intimidated. Note: Though this is historical fiction and the characters have been developed to accommodate a story, their attributes and development may be useful as reference points and inspirations.
