Overview

John Ermine of the Yellowstone (1902) is Frederic Remington’s greatest literary achievement. A tragic and realistic story about race, identity, love, and the frontier is still a favorite of American readers today.

John Ermine, known to his Crow tribe as White Weasel, must choose between the tribe that became his family and his white heritage. Although John sees himself as Native American at heart, he chooses to side with his white forbears and serve in the U.S. Army. When the commander’s daughter, Katherine Searles, comes to base camp he attempts to connect with and woo her. His failure poses the question, can women like Katherine and men like John live in the same space? Or is this, tragically, “The End of All Things”?

Meet the Author

World-famous artist and illustrator Frederic Remington (1861-1909), was a life-long student of battles and the American west. He took many trips to former battle sights as well witnessing ongoing campaigns against Geronimo and the Sioux. After publishing eight books, including Sundown Leflare and The Way of an Indian, he stopped writing to focus on other ways of expressing his love of the West: art and sculpture.
