An American Western with an unusual twist from the author of The Last Apache Girl
"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) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
