Publisher's Summary

Liza Ralston has had more adventure in her life than she ever wanted. Leaving her settled existence with friends and family in St. Louis to travel to the Big Sky country of wild Montana with her father, she soon wishes she could turn the clock back. When their scout is murdered and her father is severely wounded by thieves, the Pikuni tribe, led by Crying Wind, takes them in. But Liza wants nothing more than to return to St. Louis, despite her growing attraction for Red Eagle, the handsome son of a white trapper and Blackfeet mother.
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.

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.

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Review

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.
