One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colorful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the US government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial Brides for Indians program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man's world. Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime. Author Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.

Interesting book, but I did not care for the reader of the audio book. She attempted different voices/ accents for the different characters. If you cant do it well, I would prefer it be read in just one voice. Bothered me all the way through the book and usually I can get used to an average reader.
