Listen to Satanta's Woman on your phone!
Captured by the Kiowa war chief Satanta, Adrianne Chastain must learn to adapt to a new culture and locate her missing grandchild while fighting her growing feelings for the tribe that adopted her.This prequel to Haseloff's Kiowa Verdict, winner of the 1997 Western Writers of America's Spur Award, fleshes out the story of beautiful widow Adrianne Chastain and her abductor, Kiowa war chief Satanta. (Haseloff's interest in white women who were carried off by Indians is not surprising, given that her parents named her for Cynthia Ann Parker, said to be the best known of nineteenth-century female captives.) A thirtysomething rancher, Chastain, both a mother and a grandmother, sees her daughter and one of her granddaughters killed in an Indian raid. She, her young son, and two other granddaughters are captured. Her son is subsequently killed by Satanta, and one of the granddaughters is taken away by a band of Comanches, the Kiowa's allies. Written with great sensitivity and strength, Haseloff's story deals with Chastain's life among the Kiowas; her feelings for her abductor and his feelings for her; and Satanta's eventual capture, imprisonment, and death. It is a fascinating tale well told. Budd Arthur --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
