Summer Storm was as soft and warm as a sweet summer rain -- as tempestuous and unpredictable as a thunderstorm over the desert. Wind Rider was destined to lead his people as a warrior chief and to tame the woman named Summer Storm. Though she had given her heart to another, he vowed their tumultuous joining would be climaxed in a whirlwind of ecstasy.
I cried when I read this book. It's the sequel to silken savage. It's about their daughter when she becomes a woman. Really great reading.
Excellent Sequel to SILKEN SAVAGE -
Begins in the Cheyenne village with the birth of the daughter to Cheyenne warrior chief A Panther Stalks and Little Wildcat.
Realistically and intelligently written, it was my pleasure to read.
I was surprised to note that some events occurred so very close to the 20th century. Very hard to grasp such atrosities by our US government continued to happened just over a little more than 100 years ago. (I guess things never change in our country where greed and racial hatred exits.)
Most of the story regards the Cheyenne living on reservation land in Oklahoma where they have been sent by the US government.
Again, this sequel is not for the faint of heart. In SILKIN SAVAGE it is easy to be repulsed by Gen. Custer's actions, and in this book I felt not one ounce of empathy at the events taken place at Little Big Horn.
Another keeper for me that was impossible to put down until the last page.
This is a wonderful book! It is funny, tragic and unforgettable. Its about more than just the girl "Summer Storm". It actually involves her whole family and their struggle to keep their indian heritage a secret in such turbulent times. I have read this book many times and have enjoyed it every single time...It is one of my favorite books!
Have the tissues ready! I cried and cried and cried!!
