Acerca de


In 1873, Jenny Dousmann heads west to build a new life for herself and her older brother, Otto, only to be savagely raped while her brother is crippled during a blizzard, but, with the help of Two Shields, a half-Cheyenne, they find refuge for themselves among the Cheyenne.


Set in the real wild west of 19th-century buffalo hunters, this is a starkly realistic novel of survival among whites scrabbling to make a living from selling hides and the grim, violent struggle between those whites and the native Indian bands. Otto Dousmann is a Civil War veteran turned hunter, joined by his sister Jenny when their parents die. But things go badly for them; Jenny is raped, Otto crippled. They take refuge with a band of Cheyenne under the care of Two Shields, an Indian buffalo skinner. Jones makes a clear contrast between Indian and white treatment of the buffalo (the whites compare badly in their wanton wasteful greed), but does not romanticize the lives of any of his characters.
