This is a weekly event that is hosted by Miz Books at Should Be Reading.

This is a weekly event to post about books I’ve discovered. This is the first time I have participated.

I only have one book to share about today, but it sounds so good.

My Friday find is :

One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus by Jim Fergus

Description:

“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.

Debbie of Debbie’s World brought my attention to this book. To read her review, go here.
