About this title

Synopsis:

A fictionalized account, as seen through the eyes of a woman known as Whirlwind, of life with the Oglala Sioux from 1820 through the aftermath of the victory at the Little Bighorn in 1877.

From the Back Cover:

Whirlwind belonged to the Oglala Sioux, the people of Crazy Horse. Born in 1820 near the Black Hills, she knew prosperity - her father could afford an expensive Buffalo Maiden ceremony - and eventually tragedy. The Indian woman feels profoundly the chill of change: the decimation of the buffalo, the coming of white settlers to the Great Plains, the wars that reduce her people to raggedness. After the Battle of the Little Big Horn and an attack that leaves her band homeless, Grandmother Whirlwind faces her final challenge in joining the band's journey through snow toward refuge in Canada. With attention to timeless humanity and time-bound history, Dorothy M. Johnson's novel follows the life of Whirlwind, seeing through her eyes the daily routine and rituals of the Sioux.
