Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Vella Munn is a major talent in historical fiction. Her stories never fail to lift the spirit and warm the heart." —Susan Wiggs

"Vella Munn is the absolute master [at creating] superior historical romances set among native Americans, mostly in the years before white encroachment eroded their traditional culture." —Oregon Statesman Journal

"Engrossing. Highly recommended." —Kliatt on Spirit of the Eagle

"A compelling and tragic tale." —Booklist on Soul of the Sacred Earth

Publishers Weekly
Vella Munn (Blackfeet Season) recounts the travails of warriors Grey Bear and Lone Hawk in Cheyenne Summer. Drought plagues the land and food is scarce; the Cheyenne must compete with the rival Pawnee for food. Wildfires sweep across the land, adding to the danger and drama. Various romantic intrigues and power struggles play out against this backdrop especially the tense rivalry between Grey Bear and Lone Hawk over what is best for the tribe. This will interest only those who know the genre and are willing to tolerate dialogue along the lines of "Look into my eyes and see the eyes of your death."

    Excellent historical fiction

    In 1800, drought has driven the buffalo away while the dryness makes wildfires frequent and nearly impossible to stop. In this environment, the Cheyenne and their rival the Pawnee vie for the dwindling food and water supplies and tempers are quite high. <P>Two Cheyenne leaders Grey Bear and Lone Hawk disagree on the future of their people. The intrepid Grey Bear wants war with the Pawnee in a winner takes all deadly scenario even though he knows many of his people will die. The cerebral Lone Hawk realizes that the Pawnee share the misery caused by the drought so that he wants both tribes to cooperate for the betterment of everyone. As a fire razes the Cheyenne, two women Touches the Wind and Seeks Fire become involved in the leadership battle that will determine the future of the Cheyenne. <P> CHEYENNE SUMMER is an exciting, action-packed, but deep look at the Cheyenne. The story line provides an incredible glimpse at a way of life during a major crisis. The characters seem genuine though Grey Bear¿s military response seems difficult to accept when so many bellies are empty. Still Vella Munn paints an awesome landscape with strong portraits that show she is quite an artist when it comes historical fiction. <P>Harriet Klausner
