After struggling through the throes of being kidnapped by Indians and traded for goods to the Arapahos, Sarah Anderson proves herself worthy of the Indian name Vision Seeker, becomes the wife to Running Swift and the mother to Little Feather.

Sarah settles into the comfortable daily routines of Indian wife and mother until her life is again changed when the Army charges into the village to arrest the warring warriors only to find Sarah living among the natives.

Returned to Fort Laramie, Sarah must now face the difficult task of transitioning back into the white world with an Indian child. As a soiled dove she is shunned by the white populace. At the fort, her path crosses that of Patrick O Brien whom she once loved and believes can no longer have.

Writing is now an important part of her life. She has traveled across the United States with her characters through undeveloped territories, seen the wonders of the west in its magnificence, and eaten the dust from the covered wagons as she walked the Oregon Trail. What an adventure her characters have taken.

Review:

A full-bodied saga about the adventures of a frontier family, their friends and their enemies in the Indian-war years just before the Civil War. ----Elmer Kelton, Hard Trail to Follow, Tom Doherty Associates, LLC

With an easy, unpretentious writing style, Gwyn Ramsey keeps her novel moving at a brisk space. WINDS OF CHANGE blends the best elements of historical, romance and Western fiction, and reminds us of why Americans like to read a good, strong story about our country. ---- Johnny D. Boggs, Three-time Spur Award-winning author of Camp Ford and Northfield, Dorchester Publishing Co, Inc.

Winds of Change brings alive the West before the Civil War, moving from bison hooves shaking the earth and traditional, horse-rich Arapaho villages to Army forts with their rigid society and trappers' rough encampments in the Cascade Mountains, and finally to the wind-blasted prairie of Kansas Territory, where farmers begin to slice into the black prairie sod. Although rich in historical detail, this saga of a family broken and re-formed is timeless, a journey through the lives of ordinary people who must come to terms with who they are in order to walk the path they are given with love. ----Susan J. Tweit, author of Walking Nature Home: A Life's Journey, forthcoming from Univ. of Texas Press
