Explanation of the Book:

The stunning sequel to the award-winning novel One Thousand White Women: A Novel. "Clever and satisfying...Fergus is a superb writer [and] the characters are as real as any pioneer women who braved the rigors of westering." —The Denver Post "A gripping tale, a history lesson infused with both sadness at the violence perpetuated against the Cheyenne and awe at the endurance of this remarkable group of women." —Booklist, starred review 9 March 1876 My name is Meggie Kelly and I take up this pencil with my twin sister, Susie. We have nothing left, less than nothing. The village of our People has been destroyed, all our possessions burned, our friends butchered by the soldiers, our baby daughters gone, frozen to death on an ungodly trek across these rocky mountains. Empty of human feeling, half-dead ourselves, all that remains of us intact are hearts turned to stone. We curse the U.S. government, we curse the Army, we curse the savagery of mankind, white and Indian alike. We curse God in his heaven. Do not underestimate the power of a mother’s vengeance... So begins the Journal of Margaret Kelly, a woman who participated in the U.S. government's "Brides for Indians" program in 1873, a program whose conceit was that the way to peace between the United States and the Cheyenne Nation was for One Thousand White Woman to be given as brides in exchange for three hundred horses. These "brides" were mostly fallen women; women in prison, prostitutes, the occasional adventurer, or those incarcerated in asylums. No one expected this program to work. And the brides themselves thought of it simply as a chance at freedom. But many of them fell in love with their Cheyenne spouses and had children with them...and became Cheyenne themselves. The Vengeance of Mothers explores what happens to the bonds between wives and husbands, children and mothers, when society sees them as "unspeakable." What does it mean to be white, to be Cheyenne, and how far will these women go to avenge the ones they love? With vivid detail and keen emotional depth, Jim Fergus brings to light a time and place in American history and fills it with unforgettable characters who live and breathe with a passion we can relate to even today.

Explanation of the Book:

Thank you for your interest in DARE HUNTER. If you tend to read aloud make sure there are no children within earshot for they will never sleep again, at least not soundly. I warned you. Please note, this is not a novel of horror, but it is filled with horrific brutality. The idea of this novel is that He is not writing to you but reading to you. Now, once you turn this page, you will be sunk into the mind of Buchannon Dare, his mind slowly tormented and tortured, as he dishes out the same torment in a rampage of revenge. He takes a stand for the victims, the little guys who can't defend themselves, those who have been raped, others taken advantage of, and those too innocent to have been abused. He never wanted for anything, he just felt his God turned his back on him, and he could not care less. He is by no means a bad guy, just hunting for the worst of them and giving them what they deserve besides a prison cell. Once trapped by him, they are subjected to the cruelty spilling forth from the prison of our hero's mind. I give you fair warning again before you join him on this journey, for it gets deeper than my mind can even write or describe to you. Put on your seat belt and follow him into a dark forest of your own imagination, my words holding your hand. I did what I must; you do what you must. So, either put me in the freezer or toss me in the trash and keep your sanity; for this ride with me is fucking crazy. Ho hum, seat belt not on yet? Listen and listen close, dammit! Do you see the needle? When was the last time you saw one? It is so skinny, so fragile, and yet so sharp and bloodthirsty by mistake. That was my mind writing this. Want to peek through its eye? I don't think you do; for in that tiny hole, you will find such terror. That was the eye of my needle; my mind. You want no part of it I assure you. You know what? Come on in any way, they are waiting for you. I know you want to do it. Make your mind a thread and push it through please, I beg you. Now you have it, a taste like a lick of salt upon your palate. Now read this novel, I DARE you!
