Kidnapped by Indians when she was little maore than a girl, Katherine Coltrane became the wife of a warrior. Rescued by bluecoats years later, she was force to leave her infant daughter behind. She became a woman alone in a violent world of men. Surviving by her iron will and silken flesh, she carved out a vast cattle kingdom and defended it in range wars that swept the Wyoming territory like wildfire. She found men who matched her strength and passion--frontiersmen, soldiers, outlaws, men who loved her or feared her, but could never tame her pride and independence. Yet Kate never stopped the relentless seach for her lost child--in an epic quest that had to bridge the gap betweeen Indians and whites on a frontier split by savage struggle...

This was a good read about a stronge frontiers woman. Really brings the characters to life. Makes you remember that there really were people like this who gave us such a rich history.

Very good read! Reminiscent of Matt Braun or Terry Johnson. It's the story of Katherine Coltrane, a captive of the Lakota who, after being rescued by the U.S. Army, was forced to make her way in the world without the help of family (killed at the time of her capture). This book is filled with quite a few real life characters and places of the old West.
