Some brief overview of book
The stunning sequel to the award-winning novel One Thousand White Women A Novel. "Clever and satisfying... Fergus is a superb writer and the characters are as real as any pioneer women who braved the rigors of westering." The Denver Post "A gripping tale, a history lesson infused with both sadness at the violence perpetuated against the Cheyenne and awe at the endurance of this remarkable group of women." Booklist, starred review 9 March 1876 My name is Meggie Kelly and I take up this pencil with my twin sister, Susie.
We have nothing left, less than nothing. The village of our People has been destroyed, all our possessions burned, our friends butchered by the soldiers, our baby daughters gone, frozen to death on an ungodly trek across these rocky mountains. Empty of human feeling, half-dead ourselves, all that remains of us intact are hearts turned to stone.
We curse the U. S. government, we curse the Army, we curse the savagery of mankind, white and Indian alike. We curse God in his heaven.
Do not underestimate the power of a mothers vengeance... So begins the Journal of Margaret Kelly, a woman who participated in the U. S. government's "Brides for Indians" program in 1873, a program whose conceit was that the way to peace between the United States and the Cheyenne Nation was for One Thousand White Woman to be given as brides in exchange for three hundred horses.
These "brides" were mostly fallen women; women in prison, prostitutes, the occasional adventurer, or those incarcerated in asylums. No one expected this program to work. And the brides themselves thought of it simply as a chance at freedom.
But many of them fell in love with their Cheyenne spouses and had children with them... and became Cheyenne themselves. The Vengeance of Mothers explores what happens to the bonds between wives and husbands, children and mothers, when society sees them as "unspeakable." What does it mean to be white, to be Cheyenne, and how far will these women go to avenge the ones they love? With vivid detail and keen emotional depth, Jim Fergus brings to light a time and place in American history and fills it with unforgettable characters who live and breathe with a passion we can relate to even today.
