The Vengeance of Mothers by Jim Fergus is the second book in the “One Thousand White Women” series. Both deal with the transfer of one thousand white women to the Cheyenne Nation as part of the “Brides for Indians” program in 1873. This book deals with the people and the relationships that were bonded in this program. You can only imagine the treatment and disdain that was shown to these women by the society of that time. Many of the women were supposedly women who were “unspeakables”, convicts, prostitutes, insane, etc. I loved the first book and I enjoyed the second book. I think that it would be a worthy addition to anyone who is interested in learning more about the U.S. and their relations with Native Americans during that time in history. Recommended for those who love Historical Fiction.
The Vengeance of Mothers by Jim Fergus will be available September 12, 2017 by St. Martin’s Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
