One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. 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. Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.

Jim Fergus is field editor and monthly columnist for sports Afield magazine and also writes a monthly feature on the AllOutdoors.com Web site. His work has appeared in numerous national magazines and newspapers, and he is the author of the nonfiction book A Hunter's Road. He lives in northern Colorado.

  • What a disappointment...

    I looked with eager anticipation for this book to arrive in the mail. I immediately began to read it...and I did manage to finish it...but I am sorry I did. The concept of such a transaction between the US Goverment and the Indians was fascinating in origin and I thought this book would be very entertaining...but BOY WAS I WRONG. The book was vulgar, the story line was dull and stagnated and went nowhere in a hurry. But my biggest complaint was the constant barrage of inappropriate innuendos and bad language. The story could have been told without the words you find on the bathroom walls in public restrooms. Don't waste your money...this one is better off as firewood than reading material!

  • Terrific read

    This is a terrific read under the catagory "what if." Almost reads like a actual historical account of one woman's journey as a bride to Indians to improve the relationship between whites and indians. This book arrived promptly and in wonderful condition.

  • A real Gem!

    This beautifully written book is filled with historic details that remind us of the Native American's plight . The story revolves around a chief that foresaw the white mans never ending occupation of his land and tried in vain to find a way of living peacefully together as equals. I have recommended this book to several of my friends, all avid readers (like myself) and they too feel that this book is definitely worth reading and passing on!

  • Great

    Ran through this book. Great story line, fabulous characters. It was very evident that the author did a lot of research into the social customs of the times, the landscapes, lifestyles. I highly recommend this fascinating read. It was hard to believe that the United States actually thought this premise might work back in 1835. the storyline gives a view from both sides of the coin.
