    This takes place in the late 1800's. I was swept back in time when life was much different than it is today. It was refreshing to read about Native Americans. In the story we watch Falcon Woman and Rising Wolf fall in love and make a life together. We also get to see how Falcon Woman's brother falls in love as well. I found it very hard to put this story down. Life back then was very hard and we get to see that. We also get a peek about fear of loosing a loved one and death of a loved one. Though we see heartache we also see lots of love and good things. I think it is great that Ms. Smith did not sugar coat things in the story. This was my first novel by Ms. Smith and I will be checking for more from her. This does not contain any swearing or sex for those who are interested.

    "Swim the River" by Stephy Smith was a good read. I enjoyed how this author was able to mix a story with whites' and Indians.... showing how the hatred of some whites toward the Indians were horrible. I didn't think I was going to like this novel however, after completely
    finishing it .... I found this a good read.

    "Swim the River" told the story of a woman (Bright Eyes)being rescued from the river... due to the hatred of the white man(Harvey Morgan)....she survived...due to the help of Silver Hawk....after a marriage to Rising Wolf... (Amelia) Falcon Woman saves her husband...by swimming the river... after he was.... well I really don't want to tell you this... You will have to just pick up this read..."Swim the River" to find out what happened to the bear.


    This novel was of survival of the Cheyenne Indians that were not treated well on the reservations. Several families were able to move out of the Pine Ridge Reservation area to Colorado with(Falcon Womans') family to now be able to live their lifes the fullest...Rising Wolf would now be able to hunt buffalo.... being able to teach the boys and (Snow Bird) the girls their ways of their ancestors ... now being proud to carry on the Cheyenne tradition... most important teaching them love..."if they picked their battles wisely, this could help educate the ones left on the reservation."

    The novel really brought out the meanness and hatred of people ....if they(Indian) hunted for food...they were shot....if they owned weapons...they were imprisoned or killed.. they were given rotten meat to eat.....Wow!

    The author characters were really something in this novel and I loved their Indian names.... Falcon Woman, Rising Wolf, Silver Hawk, Bright Eyes, Woman with Small Voice, Red Eagle and Snow Bird. Now you will have to read this good novel to see what were their American names.

    "Swim the River" was a very interesting Indian novel and if you are in for a good read this one is for you.
