* * * * One Thousand White Women

One Thousand White Women: The Journals Of May Dodd a novel By Jim Fergus

At first I thought this book was going to be corny. But I persevered and am so glad I did because I'll be remembering this book for a long time. The book is based on a supposed historical event where Cheyenne Chief Little Wolf asks the government to trade one thousand white women for horses. Regardless of the truth of this event, it is a good story and I enjoyed it immensely.

Audrey, that's the book Grannie was reading when we met in Dallas. (Btw, she is GeeGee, short for Great Grannie, to Katlynn). She quoted from the book, complete with a very comical and lovable gesture that one of the characters in the book made.

Antigone's comment....well you CAN figure that one out.
