Wow...what can I say about this book? I loved, Windhawk ....he was so loving to Joanna. He was so patient and didn't rush her into a relationship. He wanted her to come to him and really mean it when they made love for the first time.

Windhawk meets Joanna and Tag when their Wagon train stops on the trail. Tag wants a Tomahawk and trades his knife with Windhawk for one.

Windhawk cared so much for Joanna and her little brother Tag you just want to say awwww as you are reading it.

I really love a good "kidnapped by Indians" themed story. However in order for me to really like it, it needs to be realistic. I HATE it when the h is falling in love with the H just after he's kidnapped her and they haven't even made it to his village yet. This one was somewhat different than any that I had read before. Windhawk (H) and Joanna (h) had met before and on friendly terms. They have sometime to get to know eachother so there is some kind of friendship between the two. Also Windhawk ...more

One of Constance O'Banyon's Best.

I was very disappointed with Constance O'Banyon's "Enchanted Ecstasy". Therefore, I didn't necessarily have high hopes for "Savage Autumn", the first book in her "Savage Seasons of Blackfoot" series. However, I was happily proven wrong, as this is a truly beautiful love story.

The Story: The story begins on a sad note. Seventeen-year old Joanna James, the heroine of the book, and her twelve-year old brother, Taggart-or Tag as he is known-have lost their mother,
Beyond predictable! Bad!
I absolutely loved this book!!! It was one of the first western romance novels I ever read. It has always been special to me, and I have read it several times. The characters have a depth to them that is hard to find in books. I admit it starts out slow. However, and true lover of books should know not to give up on a book until at least reading three chapters!

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys Western Romance!

Entertaining enough that I'll read the book's sequel, Savage Winter. I felt kind of bad for Windhawk at times because he recognized his feelings for Joanna right away, while she remained reluctant. Misunderstandings between characters that could be easily resolved, but aren't, can be annoying when they are used to further the plot. Loved Joanna's little brother, will definitely read his book in the series (3).
First half: Joanna is a pretty weak character. I hate heroines that say they hate the hero, but the minute the hero puts his hand up her dress, she's all gung-ho for some needy sex. #pathetic #getagrip

Second half: Joanna grew on me. Although the interaction between her and Windhawk made me grind my teeth sometimes. Too much assuming, not enough communication.
Absolutely adore the story of Windhawk and Joanna. This is definitely one of my favorite series. It has been so long since I read this novel that it was almost like reading it for the first time.

I read about 30 pages and just can't go on. The writing seems almost juvenile. I'm just guessing by the age of the book (1990) that this is why I feel this way.
Not a 4 star simply due to hatred of too much guessing and assumptions and not enough communication for my tastes, otherwise i enjoyed the book.
Too many misunderstandings! I hate when 3/4 of the book could be eliminated simply by one or the other speaking up.

I can't believe this was in the early 80's I read this book, again another good book by this author!

This was a blast from the past read for me. The story was just ok. I found it a little boring.

Tried to read the first chapter. Dull and bland.
