Overview

In 1876, sixteen-year old mail-order bride Ellen O'Hara sets off westward from Salina, Kansas to meet her husband-to-be, a cavalry officer stationed at Fort Walla Walla in Washington Territory. En route, her traveling party is attacked by Indians near Elko, Nevada. Badly wounded, Ellen can think of nothing more than heading north to her fiancé. But she wanders off into the wilderness and disappears. Eventually found near death by a band of Shoshone Indians, she becomes immersed in a doomed alien culture she grows to admire. Knowing tragedy is in their future, she fights against her own race for the survival of her new friends—and for her man, the Shoshone chief Bear Paw. When she is returned to white society, and on trial for murder, she must choose—between the culture she was born to and the one in which she became a woman, between the man she was promised to and the man she has grown to love.

Bill Scott, author, Light On A Distant Hill, winner of the 2011 WILLA Award for Original Soft Cover Fiction by Women Writing the West.

    Ellen tells her story and shares her diary with a young reporter. As her story unfolds Ellen shares her life changing events that leave her torn between Bear Paw a shohone indian and captian Morrow. I did not want want to put the book down, I had too many questions. A lot happens in 260 pages. The history of the american indian has no good ending but I think this book did. A must read. I hope the author writes more books like this one.
