Overview

Two mixed-blood young people, each with a different vision of what life should be. Two lovers, kept apart by their beliefs. Two nations, the Blackfoot and the United States, at sword's point.

St. Louis-educated Marie Therese de Paris returns to her people in Montana determined to preserve their ways. She becomes a seer, a medicine woman, of the Blackfeet, and lives the dedicated life of a prophet on the Two Medicine River. Peter Kipp, son of an American Fur Company trader, wants to enter his father's world and live as white men do. The two young people love each other, but cannot find the common ground they need to come together.

And then the United States Army arrives, determined to subdue a people who are not at war. And the world of the young people is torn apart forever.

Meet the Author

I've published over seventy novels, most of them dealing with the American West. I've been published by Doubleday, M. Evans, Bantam, Ballantine, Forge, Fawcett, Pinnacle, Walker and Company, Sunstone Press, and Berkley. I've written fur-trade novels, including my Skye's West series, and numerous novels about western mining. I've won six Spur Awards from Western Writers of America, which at this writing is more than any other living author. I've also written several mysteries under a pseudonym, Axel Brand. These are set in the 1940s and feature Lieutenant Joe Sonntag of the Milwaukee Police Department. I became a novelist late in life, after years as a newsman and book editor.

A beautiful, but albeit, a tragic story. Highly recommend. Unforgettable. This is the first I have read of Mr. Wheeler's Books and I look forward to reading many more.
