    Off to a strong start in this great historical Western fantasy of a white American girl who marries a wild Sheyenna It's uite a start to their relationship out on the plains of to be Montana in 1872 I met a smart no nonsense savage who knew far about my world than I knew about his She realizes she's being courted and has mixed feelings about that She let the gift mare take her to Yellow Legs her suitor A big mistake by sunup I was lying naked under a buffalo robe watching Yellow Legs make us breakfast The visit stretched into a long week of lovemaking followed by a fairy tale honeymoon along the Yellowstone where Sitting Bull threw us a wedding feast note 1Political pillow talk with Yellow Legs 1873 She Texas is part of America you know He Someone should tell the Texans When they crossed over to Wyoming Territory she had the theoretical right to vote since 1870 But not to marry a Negro or a Chinaman And the Democrats tried to take back the vote from the women when they found out how many whores who were most of the white women there then voted Republican Perfectly legal for her or a man to marry an Indian though of course the Indians couldn't vote not being citizens which didn't happen until 1924 note 2Oh and Yellowstone became the world's first National Park in 1872 References to tourists in Yellowstone threw me at first until I looked up the date Author has a PhD In history and clearly did his homeworkThis is a remarkable novel At 34 through I'd be very surprised if it doesn't earn a full 5 stars from me You wouldn't think a book so thrillingly strange could come out of the Gen Custer 7th Cavalry Little Bighorn debacle but here it is Ranging all the way from Montana to the Staked Plains of Texas the novel enters the supernatural when the granite gates of the Wichita Mountains open and the Southern Herd pours in I don't think I'm going to say about what happens then except to say that as before the author has done his homework and the Spirit World is firmly grounded in scientific knowledge of the late Pleistocene It's uite a ride High marks and remarkably under appreciated This was his fourth novel and easily his best so far Commercially it was a flop despite a truly gorgeous cover by Nicholas Jainschigg oh why hasn't this marvelous book found its readers? Maybe this review will help 22 years on?Slated for reread in a few years although I may have to buy a second copy since I have readers already in line for mine
