Red Eagle has tried to help Liza and her father, but Liza has a mind of her own. She doesn't understand that the refined ways of civilized society in St. Louis have not yet reached the untamed land she is traveling now with her missionary father - a man who has secrets of his own that he is unwilling to share. She is left with no choice but to accept the help of Red Eagle's tribe to save the life of her father. But the events leading up to Baker's Massacre of 1870 force her to discover a new path for herself - a path leading to love, redemption...and revenge.
Will Red Eagle and Liza find the love they've been waiting for? Beauty, treachery, and danger lie Across the Sweet Grass Hills.
Across the Sweet Grass Hills won the 2002 WILLA Literary Award for Best Softcover Fiction, by Women Writing the West. It also placed as a quarter-finalist in the 2000 Chesterfield Film Project.

Three and a half stars
Any additional comments?
I found that the plot is good and I liked the twist in the story. The authors shows us that she has done her research and new what she was talking about. However I found it slow to begin with. You have to keep reading before it gets better. I didn't like the heroin so much, i found her to be annoying and we are told what the characters are feeling instead of been shown.
The book is not bad and I would still recommend it.

This has been a harrowing book to listen to. Such a crime against humanity should never be forgotten, what was done to the American Indians. I am however glad I did listen to it because we all need to be aware of man's inhumanity and learn from it. This should never be allowed to happen again. We have to understand that all people are equal and should be treated as such. This story is beautifully written and has tried to be as honest as possible. It is sensitive in parts but brave enough to show how brutally the Indians were wiped out. My heart grieves for them may they always be remembered.

What a wonderful story!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It is filled with American History, memorable characters, and a wonderful story that doesn't disappoint. This author weaves a beautifully written tale of Liza and Red Eagle. Their journey across Montana is not just an adventure but a learning experience for both of them. It's a story that sticks with you long after it's completed. It's a clean read and is appropriate for all ages. 4.5 Stars!
Narration was nicely read. She is one of those narrators that grows on you as the story progresses. :-)
I highly recommend to all those who love Romances with American History.
My thanks to the author, narrator or publisher for providing a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review. :-)

Wow! Great Native American Historical Romance!
This is a fairly new genre for me. I don't care for western movies but I wanted to give this book a try. It is such a well written book! It sucked me in from the beginning. It was tough to see how bad things were between the soldiers and Native Americans. The prejudice between them was so crazy and unbelievable.
It took awhile but Liza eventually figured out that not every soldier was honorable and not every Native American wanted to scalp people... There are good honorable people in every race. As there are evil doers...
The book is told in multiple POV. You really get a good glimpse at each character's feelings and behaviors.
Narration was well done and brought the story to life.
The author is extremely talented and she weaved such an amazing tale depicting how life was back around the 1800's... It is crazy to think how different everything was back then...
I'll definitely look forward to reading more books by Gail L. Jenner.
