The Vengeance of Mothers
by Jim Fergus
PBR Review:
I read Jim Fergus's first book, One Thousand White Woman. I loved it and knew the sequel was a must read. I finished this wonderful page-turner in two sittings. Don't worry too much if you haven't read the first book; you will thoroughly enjoy The Vengeance of Mothers regardless.

I loved the premise of this book; the US trades horses from the Cheyenne Indians for white women; the Brides for Indians program" a failed initiative, meant to help assimilate the Native Americans into white society.

This story is about the second wave of women traded to the Indians and takes place during a turbulent time in history; the US government is expanding its territories and is on a mission to eliminate the Indian population. The story looks at what happens after the army attacks a tribe and among the causalities are the children and husbands of white women. The surviving women are on a mission of revenge. Their journey is fascinating and does not shed a favorable light on the US government or army. I did not want this book to end. Recommend
