Description
In this second historical novel, following Etta, Gerald Kolpan gives us a rollicking, riveting novel of love and adventure, as young Jewish immigrant Julius Meyer comes of age in the wild world of 1867 Nebraska, and finds himself acting as translator for Ponca Indian chief Standing Bear.

"Kolpan deepens his inquiry into overlooked figures of the Old West ... [and] offers sensitive revelations of the horrific suffering of Native Americans forced from their homelands—crimes and tragedies he thoughtfully parallels with the bloodshed and exile endured by Jews. In all, a distinctively insightful and bewitching work of compassionate historical fiction by an adept novelist one hopes has lots more tricks up his sleeves."—Booklist (starred review)
