To become a woman meant everything to Sweetgrass. But… how was a 15-year-old Blood girl to wait for her parents to choose her husband when her heart yearned for Eagle Sun? Set in the historic horse-and-gun period of the Blackfoot confederacy, this daring first novel charts unknown territory on the early 19th century prairie — the lives of Native women caught up in the sweep of Western Canadian history.
