One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. - with so many re-pins elsewhere I thought I'd add it to my "should read" list.
Historical fiction about a woman who chooses to live with the Native Americans (1875) in order to find her personal freedom.
really good! what if we really did give 1,000 white women to the cheyenne indians to try to assimilate them into our culture? this is the fictional story of the lies told to native americans and the women who chose to take this adventure to earn their freedom.
On my "To Read" list... Another pinner said: "Little known fact from our history... 1,000 "white women" traded for peace with native Americans... amazing story. Couldn't put it down.--sounds good."
One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus - historical fiction, the account of several "civilized" woman married to Cheyenne Indians (Chief Little Wolf) as part of a government program (General Grant) in the mid-800s in Nebraska territory. interesting, quick read - believable, draws you in, you won't want to put it down.
The story of Mary Dodd who travels west in 1875 to marry a Cheyenne Indian. A good historical fiction book!
My best friend says that this is one of her favorite books...I WILL be reading this come summer.
1000 white women. My last book club book. Interesting!
I adore this book . . . read and reread . . .
