One Thousand White Women

“Have you ever wonder what if this happened another way than it actually did? Well that’s exactly what this author wrote. He took a fact from history and wrote what it could have been like had the government said yes to the deal the chief of this tribe requested by exchanging 1,000 white women to marry and birth a child with the natives in return for horses. Yes it sounds insane but it’s intriguing to read an alternate version of reality with so many true facts mixed into this story. These women were anxious and scared yet ready to serve their country anyway they could. They immersed themselves into a whole new way of life from what they’ve always known. This is a favorite of our local book stores book club.”

One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the US government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial Brides for Indians program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man's world. Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime. Author Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.
