After the battle of Little Big Horn, the U.S. government issued Janis an ultimatum: divorce First Elk Woman and keep his homestead in Colorado, or relinquish his land and share her fate in the Badlands of Pine Ridge Reservation. The compelling forces that shape his decision form a classic story of the American frontier. This novel is, above all, a love story of the first order.
