An excellent book which shows the tragedy of our historical relationship with the native Americans. Human fear, trust issues and love are each a part of this novel.
I’ve read and heard this book several times because I so enjoy Jim Fergus’s writing. Imagine my delight when I decided to check if he had written more, which of course he had. I now have a good selection of books I’ll touch base with for many years to come. The narration is perfect!
Loved this book!
I heard about this book a long time ago and had the impression that it was a true story. It certainly feels like one as you hear the journal entries of the main character. She tell the story of a group of women who were part of the "brides for Indians" program designed by Ulysses S. Grant to help settle the west. The women wee exchanged for ponies. They were volunteers, from prisons, mental hospitals, etc.
This is a book I will listen to again.
I loved this book. The format in which it was written (as if reading the main character's journal and letters), was well done and made the story very believable.
