If you plan to read, One Thousand White Woman by Jim Fergus is a wonderful novel that will allow you to slip away, unannounced, until your pains subside. Getting lost in Mary Dodd's adventures reminds you to peacefully slither away into the reprieve of your bedroom to rejuvenate your soul. It's amazing how doing something that relaxes you or makes you happy is better than many pain killers for this illness. The key is to find something you can lose yourself in. That is why I only post books that I've personally read myself. Being an educator, I have a bit of advantage when it comes to the literature line. Grab Fergus' book today for a new adventure in peace this week.
One Thousand White Women begins with May Dodd's journey west into the unknown. A government program, in which women are brought west as brides for the Cheyenne, is her vehicle. What
follows is the story of May's adventures: her marriage to Little Wolf, chief of the Cheyenne nation, and her conflict of being caught between two worlds, loving two men, living two lives. Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.
"Jim Fergus so skillfully envelopes us in the heart and mind and skin oh his main character…that we weep when she mourns…and our hearts pound when she is in danger."
