With vivid detail and keen emotional insight, Jim Fergus’ One Thousand White Women Series reflects on the bonds between husbands and wives, mothers and children, and what true freedom meant for the Native inhabitants of the great American West. Beginning with the now-classic story of May Dodd and the controversial “brides for Indians” program and continuing with the diaries of her companions in The Vengeance of Mothers, this historical fiction series has been called “terse, convincing, and affecting” (Kirkus) and “gripping” (Booklist, starred review).
