Staff Reviews

This novel, based on an incident in 1866, is historical fiction on an epic scale! In the shadow of the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming territory, Colonel Henry Corrington is overseeing the construction of a large fort to help safeguard travelers during the country's westward expansion. The influx of white soldiers and their families is regarded by the Native American tribes as an intrusion upon lands that have been home for them for generations. The uneasy coexistence, potentially as volatile as dry prairie grass, is threatened by a brash young lieutenant whose taste for bloodshed was honed on the killing fields of the Civil War. The climactic battle is one of the most visceral and vivid accounts of a tragically inevitable confrontation between two disparate cultures--each convinced of the nobility of its cause--that I have ever read.
