Johnston's (Titus Bass trilogy) historical novel focuses on the Indian Wars of the latter half of the 19th century. Hero Seamus Donegan is an outsider from Ireland who transcends unjust charges of cowardice to earn the respect and admiration of his comrades-in-arms as they struggle to establish a fort in hostile Sioux country. His heart as big as Montana, Donegan is the only likable character in this strangely schizophrenic chronicle, in which the author's allegiance switches confusingly between the white man and the red man.
