"This is the story of the warriors and priests, trappers and traders, explorers and schemers who came across the frontier seeking new faith and new fortune. Here is Heron Woman of the Horn People: drawn by a curious yet powerful desire into the arms of a stranger, she gives birth to a child of destiny." "Here also are the freed slave named Washington who follows in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, choosing to live among the Comanches; and easterner Jed Sterling, who leaves the comfort of Princeton to seek his fortune in the wilderness - only to discover the price of love and survival." "These are but a few of the unforgettable characters who come alive in these pages - a boldly dramatic, vividly authentic portrait of Kansas and its heritage. A tale of conquest and tyranny, political intrigue and personal betrayal, romance, revenge, and revelation, Tallgrass captures as never before all the grandeur of the great North American prairie."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
