Description

Yale-educated Thomas McCabe accepts a position with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and is soon sent to live among a nomadic tribe in the wilds of Missouri. After saving the life of a young brave, Thomas is grudgingly accepted by the Cheyenne-until he falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful Night Bird Woman. Determined to marry the girl he has seen all his life in his dreams, Thomas must first prove himself by passing the excruciatingly painful and spiritually breathtaking Test of Fire. It is through this initiation that he is visited by a Spirit Vision, one that carries a message powerful enough not only to teach Thomas the true meaning of courage, but to remake the lives of the proud-and imperiled-people he will come to call family. Written under the name Jackson O' Reilly, Robert Jordan's historical western Cheyenne Raiders is a stunning tale of the bravery, and discovery of love in the time of war.show more

Review quote

"In "Cheyenne Raiders," Robert Jordan demonstrates the talent that would one day take him to the top of the "New York Times" bestseller list, and make his name a household word around the world. Taut plotting, dynamic characters, and vivid descriptions make this fur-trade-era novel one of the best of the genre." --W. Michael Gear & Kathleen O'Neal Gearshow more
