Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty years after Dance with Wolves, Father Mark Thomas finds a life with the Cheyenne River Sioux and a beautiful woman named Fawn more compelling than his Jesuit training. But as Father Thomas' new life is beginning, the old life of the Sioux is about to end: one more hard winter and the people will starve.

The Sioux's last hope is Wovka, a Piaute prophet who promises that if all dance his Ghost Dance then the buffalo will return and the white man will vanish from the earth.

Is Wovoka a savior? Will the Ghost Dance lead the people to salvation, or to the tragedy called Wounded Knee?
