"At the heart of Robert F. Jones's galloping new novel is the near decimation of America's vast buffalo herd, which triggered the last and bloodiest Indian War in history. Left homeless by the panic of 1873, thousands of Americans like Jenny Dousmann headed West to recoup their fortunes in buffalo hides and bones. After joining her older brother, Otto, on the Buffalo Range, along with McKay, a Confederate veteran who blames himself for the death of Stonewall Jackson, Jenny is brutally raped, and her brother is crippled during a blizzard. A half-breed Cheyenne, Two Shields, leads them north into the Big Horn Mountains to salvage their lives among his People. Now known as Yellow-Haired Woman and the Wolf Chief, Jenny and Otto join Two Shields on a quest for vengeance." "A riveting adventure story, at once savage and lyrical, Tie My Bones to Her Back is a searing indictment of ecological folly and historical revisionism, and a disturbing foray into the nature of violence."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

display_description After the death of her German immigrant parents, seventeen-year-old Jenny Dousman leaves her Wisconsin home to join her brother Otto, a Civil War veteran and buffalo hunter roaming the Great Plains where whites and Native Americans are in constant battle. But their hope for prosperity is daunted by the scarcity of prey and a savage winter that tests their limits of survival. Then they are discovered, near death, by Two Shields, a Cheyenne who vows to keep them safe. But they must become members of Two Shields's tribe, and learn to hunt and live like his people. Jenny and Otto must decide if they should continue to depend on only each other or if they should put their lives in the hands of a man who is supposed to be their enemy. When they make their choice, the headstrong Jenny is soon stripped of her civilization's customs and inhibitions. In joining her adopted tribe as a fierce and indomitable warrior, she'll find her true destiny.
