Cavalry Scout

(1958)
A novel by

 
A western saga of honor amid the nineteenth-century Indian wars from the #1 New York Times - bestselling author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

"I wished I was back in Texas and had never left there to end up scouting in such godforsaken country for an army dressed in blue." Such are the sentiments of John Singleterry as this gripping tale begins in the snowy wilderness. Singleterry and his partner, Peter Dunreath, are sent to scout ahead of their battalion when they're taken captive by two fighters from the Cheyenne, a tribe not known for taking prisoners.

One fighter is an old medicine woman, suspicious and eager to kill, while the other, a beautiful mixed-race girl named Marisa, wants to wait. The women tell the scouts about their tribe's decimation during its forced relocation, and of multiple promises that have been broken - stories that force Singleterry to face difficult questions of love and desertion.

Written by an acclaimed chronicler of the drama of the American West and the conflicts between white men and Indians, this is a moving novel of torn loyalties set during one of the most tumultuous eras in Native American history. Cavalry Scout gives full-blooded reality to its time, and to both the settlers and natives at the heart of its story.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
