Kidnapped in 1867 Nebraska by Ponca Indians while on a trading mission, young immigrant Julius Meyer uses his gift for languages to become the invaluable interpreter for Chief Standing Bear. Drawing on actual historical events and figures-Julius Meyer became a translator for many prominent Indian chiefs, and Alexander Herrmann was a famous magician--Kolpan weaves an enthralling tale of adventure featuring larger-than-life characters, without trite Western stereotypes. Readers who loved Kolpan's Etta should enjoy this new work; it will also appeal to fans of Loren D. Estleman's Westerns and Thomas Berger's Little Big Man.
