9780312199432: One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd

"One Thousand White Women" begins with May Dodd's journey west, into the unknown. Yet the unknown is a far better fate than the life she left behind: committed to an insane asylum by her blueblood family for the crime of loving a man beneath her station, May finds that her only hope of freedom is to participate in a secret government program whereby women from the "civilized" world become the brides of Cheyenne warriors. What follows is the story of May's breathtaking adventures: her brief, passionate romance with the gallant young army captain John Bourke; her marriage to the great chief Little Wolf; and her conflict of being caught between two worlds, loving two men, living two lives.

Review:

"A most impressive novel that melds the physical world to the spiritual. "One Thousand White Women "is engaging, entertaining, well-written, and well-told. It will be widely read for a long time, as will the rest of Jim Fergus's work." --"Rick Bass, author of Where the Sea Used to Be"
"Jim Fergus knows his country in a way that's evocative Dee Brown and all the other great writers of the American West and its native peoples. But "One Thousand White Women "is more than a chronicle of the Old West. It's a superb tale of sorrow, suspense, exultation, and triumph that leaves the reader waiting to turn the page and wonderfully wrung out at the end." --"Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump"
"The best writing transports readers to another time and place, so that when they reluctantly close the book, they are astonished to find themselves returned to their everyday lives. "One Thousand White Women "is such a book. Jim Fergus so skillfully envelops us in the heart and mind of his main character, May Dodd, that we weep when she mourns, we shake our fist at anyone who tries to sway her course, and our hearts pound when she is in danger." --"Colorado Springs Gazette"
"An impressive historical...terse, convincing, and affecting." --"Kirkus Reviews"

From the Publisher:

Noteworthy praise for ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN
"Jim Fergus's ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN is a splendid, fresh, and engaging novel. If there were any justice...it would be a surefire bestseller. Strikingly original." --Jim Harrison (author of LEGENDS OF THE FALL)

"A most impressive novel that melds the physical world to the spiritual. ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN is engaging, entertaining, well-written, and well-told. It will be widely read for a long time, as will the rest of Jim Fergus's work." --Rick Bass (author of WINTER, THE BOOK OF YAAK, and THE SKY, THE STARS, THE WILDERNESS)

"Jim Fergus knows his country in a way that's evocative of Dee Brown and all the other great writers of the American West and its native peoples. But ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN is more than a chronical of the Old West. It's a superb tale of sorrow, suspense, exultation, and triumph that leaves the reader waiting to turn the next page and then wonderfully wrung out at the end." --Winston Groom (author of FORREST GUMP)

"In a word, ONE THOUSAND WHITE WOMEN is terrific! What Jim Fergus has done within these pages is give life and voice to an aspect of the American West and its native peoples that has been, if not covered up, too long overlooked. It is a tremendous achievement by a remarkable writer." --David Seybold (editor of BOATS and FATHERS AND SONS)

"Jim Fergus's powerful first novel is a surefire winner. I read it nonstop and would now like to propose a hundred-year moratorium on all books about white women in the Old West, since it will take the rest of us at least that long to amass the research--not to mention the compassion--needed to equal this fine work. A masterful job!" --Robert F. Jones (author of TIE MY BONES TO HER BACK)

"This is a rich, beautifully conceived, rollicking novel, literally bursting with original characters and with the profound joy and heartbreak of the real history of the American West. May Dodd may be the most compellingly alive fictional character of that history since Little Big Man." --Charles Gaines (author of A FAMILY PLACE, STAY HUNGRY, PUMPING IRON, AND SURVIVAL GAMES)
