In 1857 at Fort Benton in the Northwest Territory, an incident occurs at the local school between the white teacher and an Indian student. The child¿s brother Moon Wolf intercedes followed by some assistance from another student, white girl Alys Clayton. Moon Wolf vows to Alys that he will take her as his wife when she grows up.

In 1872, Alys returns to Fort Benton after spending years at school in the east. She still dreams of Moon Wolf who stole her heart fifteen years ago. Though he too remembers Alys, he is pledged to stop the whiskey traffic that is destroying his people. Now known as Wolf Shadow, he leads raids on what he considers contraband. When he is hurt, Alys nurses him back to health, which gives them the time for their puppy love to evolve into an adult love. Still, he feels she must stick to her own kind even when she insists on joining his forays to prove they belong together.

WOLF SHADOW¿S PROMISE is an exciting Native American romance that highlight the plight of the Indians in the latter half of the nineteenth century in Montana. The lead characters are a warm duo although the hero¿s schizoid tendencies between love and denial seems more appropriate for Two Face than for this intrepid protagonist. Though the author also relies on some doubtful devices to deploy her plot, Karen Kay writes with such strong passion that it hooks her readers and turns WOLF SHADOW¿S PROMISE into a powerful Americana tale.

This is the first book that I have read by Karen Kay. I really enjoyed reading the story. There is so many true things of the Indian's belief, that we should all follow today the world could of been a better place if the white man did not mistreat the Indian's so. I ike the part that say's remember many paths that red man and white man walk were once animal trails, remember this is ever you loose your way on the prarie-follow the path of an elk or buffalo for they will alway's lead you to water and to food also oberserve the small things. I really enjoyed reading about Aly's and Moonwolf and the way he trained and taughter her of a warrior and the love that they felt for each other.
