Book Summary

Ten years after the Seventh Cavalry massacred more than two hundred Lakota men, women, and children at Wounded Knee, J.B. Bebbett, a white rancher, and Star, a young Sioux woman, are murdered in a remote meadow on J.B.'s land.  The deaths bring together the scattered members of J.B.'s family;y:  his cunning and hard father, Drum; his estranged wife, Dulcinea; and his teenaged sons, Cullen and Hayward.  As the mystery of these twin deaths unfolds, the history of the dysfunctional Bennetts and their damning secrets are revealed--exposing the conflicted heart of a nation caught between past and future.

A kaleidoscope portrait of misfits, schemers, chancers, and dreamers, Jonis Agee's bold new novel is a panorama of America at the dawn of a new century.  A beautiful evocation of this magnificent, blood-soaked land--its sweeping prairies, seas of golden grass, and sandy hills, all at the mercy of two unpredictable and terrifying forces, weather and lawlessness--and the durable men and women who dared to tame it.
