Read in January, 2006

One of my favorite books of all time. Its basically a fictional account if the true story of an offer from the indians to the US government had actually occurred. The deal was to trade 1,000 white women for horses. Getting these women of course meant going to prisons, brothels, insane asylums and more, so the characters are varied, and quite interesting. It is told through the main character May and takes you through the experiences of these women living with the Indians, who of course cannot communicate in English. I loved it! Thanks to Emily Robidart for recommending it to me. We read it in our Jaycee Book Club and it was a great book to have in our club.

Janan you are delusional and need to read more books by authors who know how to write and do it very well.
