An exhilarating story of love and desertion set amid the nineteenth-century Indian wars ""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. Singleterry and his partner, Dunreath, are taken captive by two American Indian fighters. One is an old medicine woman, and the other, holding a rifle, is a beautiful mixed-race girl. They 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, desertion, and the real meaning of honor. A moving novel of torn loyalties, 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.
