La Vengeance des mères Read Online Free - 1875. Dans le but de favoriser l'intégration, un chef cheyenne, Little Wolf, propose au président Grant d'échanger mille chevaux contre mille femmes blanches pour les marier à ses guerriers. Grant accepte et envoie dans les contrées reculées du Nebraska les premières femmes, pour la plupart " recrutées " de force dans les pénitenciers et les asiles du pays. En dépit de tous les traités, la tribu de Little Wolf ne tarde pas à être exterminée par l'armée américaine, et quelques femmes blanches seulement échappent à ce massacre.
Parmi elles, deux sœurs, Margaret et Susan Kelly, qui, traumatisées par la perte de leurs enfants et par le comportement sanguinaire de l'armée, refusent de rejoindre la " civilisation ". Après avoir trouvé refuge dans la tribu de Sitting Bull, elles vont prendre le parti du peuple indien et se lancer, avec quelques prisonnières des Sioux, dans une lutte désespérée pour leur survie.
Avec cette aventure passionnante d'un petit groupe de femmes prises au milieu des guerres indiennes, Jim Fergus nous donne enfin la suite de Mille femmes blanches. Le miracle se produit à nouveau et cette épopée fabuleusement romanesque, véritable chant d'amour à la culture indienne et à la féminité, procure un incommensurable plaisir de lecture.

I truly liked this fictitious novel chronically done through jounel entries of the trials of white women who were pledged into the service of marrying Indians in order to pay their debt to society. The story was harrowing and a total page turner for this reader.
As the journals are read, we are in...

*SPOILERS AHEAD and Major rant ahead*
The long awaited sequel to "One Thousand White Women," Jim Fergus immediately picks up his latest book where the first one ended, so make sure you read it first. The premise of the novel is based on historical speculation rather than any concrete proof(just...

These women were to marry the braves. Problem was the government decided to end the program pretty sudd...

I went into this book blind and knowing nothing about One Thousand White Women. Actually, I didn’t even know the book existed. There is a part of me that wished that I had read One Thousand White Women before reading The Vengeance of Mothers. I could have gotten a better understanding of the wome...

I really enjoyed this sequel to One Thousand White Women. It picks up as the first one leaves off. This author obviously has taken liberties with history and supposes that the US government trades one thousand white women for Indians. Women, mostly from dregs of society, volunteer to go in hopes...

When I heard that Jim Fergus had written a sequel to One Thousand White Women, a book that I read twice, I rushed to get it. THE VENGEANCE OF MOTHERS follows some of the same women from OTWW, volunteers in the U.S. Government's Brides for Indians program, as well as a new group who arrive after t...

I won this Free book from Goodreads First-Reads. Thank you Goodreads for sending me such an interesting book.
In 1873 the US Government gathered up 1000 white women from jails, asylums, and brothels and escorted them to the Cheyennes in Southeastern Montana in exchange for 300 horses.
In the story...
