Cheyenne Trilogy: Between the Rivers

By Vehotom All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Action

Preface

The Cheyenne followed their own way of life on the Great Plains of the United States of America until the end of the 19th Century. The coming together of three great natural phenomena – the horse, unlimited grasslands and the buffalo – must have seemed heaven sent; the Cheyenne embraced it wholeheartedly. Their life of hunting and war, underpinned by spirituality, was not of course without risk or danger. Surviving nature’s occasional scarcities and warfare with other tribes for horses or captives was natural to the Cheyenne. A less natural struggle was the resistance to the gradual encroachment of Europeans who were determined to turn America into their own form of continental Paradise. The Cheyenne, in common with all other native peoples, eventually succumbed. Despite that, the Cheyenne are still with us today – on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Lame Deer, Montana.

This book has fictional characters set against a real culture with a real history. Some of the tribal structures and ceremonies are fictional though they are set in the same pattern of those that actually existed. Most of the historical events are true and well documented; I just wanted to add the Cheyenne perspective.

This book is neither a hagiography of the Cheyenne nor a condemnation of US expansion. It is about human beings dealing with hunger and plenty, war and peace, friendship and enmity, birth and death.

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Deleted User: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.
