One woman's journey from 1875 Chicago to become the wife of a Cheyenne chief.

In 1875 President Grant signed a treaty with Little Wolf, one of the Cheyenne chiefs, that he would send 1000 white women to marry into his tribe and acclimate them into "the white man's world." This is the story of one of those women as told in her journals.
