One thousand white women, Jim Fergus - (cased)

Summary
In 1875 May Dodd journeys west into the unknown, under the 'Brides for Indians' scheme, a secret government plan to pacify the Cheyenne nation by supplying a thousand willing women from the 'civilized' world to become the brides of their warriors. What follows is the story of May's breathtaking adventures: her brief, passionate romance with a gallant young army captain, her marriage to the great Cheyenne chief, Little Wolf, and her life among the savages. Based on an actual historical event but told through fictional diaries, this is the story of a remarkable woman caught between two worlds, loving two men and living two lives
