"A most impressive novel that melds the physical world to the spiritual. "One Thousand White Women "is engaging, entertaining, well-written, and well-told. It will be widely read for a long time, as will the rest of Jim Fergus's work." --"Rick Bass, author of Where the Sea Used to Be"
"Jim Fergus knows his country in a way that's evocative Dee Brown and all the other great writers of the American West and its native peoples. But "One Thousand White Women "is more than a chronicle of the Old West. It's a superb tale of sorrow, suspense, exultation, and triumph that leaves the reader waiting to turn the page and wonderfully wrung out at the end." --"Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump"
"The best writing transports readers to another time and place, so that when they reluctantly close the book, they are astonished to find themselves returned to their everyday lives. "One Thousand White Women "is such a book. Jim Fergus so skillfully envelops us in the heart and mind of his main character, May Dodd, that we weep when she mourns, we shake our fist at anyone who tries to sway her course, and our hearts pound when she is in danger." --"Colorado Springs Gazette"
"An impressive historical...terse, convincing, and affecting." --"Kirkus Reviews"

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Das Buch spielt in der 2.Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts, sein Thema ist die Eroberung des Westens Nordamerikas, der Prärie jenseits des Mississippi, durch amerikanische Truppen (Custer und Co), und die Auslöschung der dort lebenden Native Americans (Shoshone, Cheyenne, Sioux, Crow u.a.).
Der Autor bezeichnet sein Buch als "fiction", historisch verbürgt ist einzig der Ausgangspunkt: Cheyenne wenden sich 1874 an den Präsidenten der USA mit der Bitte, ihnen 1000 weiße Ehefrauen für ihre jungen Männer im Tausch gegen 1000 Pferde zu "verkaufen".Der Hintergrund dieses Angebots ist der Wunsch nach Frieden zwischen Roten und Weißen. Hier setzt die Phantasie des Autors ein....
Im Buch kommt es zu diesem deal, junge Frauen sehr unterschiedlicher Herkunft, häufig aus der Unterschicht, ziehen in die Wildnis, viele von ihnen in der hehren Absicht, ihre Männer zu "zivilisieren", zu christianisieren, und ihre gemeinsamen Kinder zu Repräsentanten einer neuen Bevölkerung zu machen, in der Ureinwohner und Weiße versöhnt sind.
Der Reiz des Buches liegt darin, dass das Aufeinandertreffen beider Kulturen aus der Perspektive dieser in und mit allen Vorurteilen der Weißen erzogenen jungen Frauen erzählt wird: Grundlage des Romans sind die fiktiven Tagebücher der May Dodd, die mit einem der Häuptlinge verheiratet wird und fast täglich in ihrem Tagebuch über das Experiment berichtet.

The idea of basing a novel around an interesting but little-known fact - that Cheyenne Chief Little Wolf traveled East to Washington, D.C. to ask President Grant for "one thousand white women" to intermarry with members of his tribe - was a stroke of genius on the part of author, Jim Fergus. It is historical fact that the offer was made and whether the women's trip West actually happened does not detract from the novel. Jim Fergus is quite clear, from the outset, that the story is fictionalized. What does detract, however, is the fact that Mr. Fergus has not done his homework on Women's Issues. May Dodd is a contemporary, 1990's, woman plunked down in the 1880's. Even the language of her journal entries does not ring true as the language of the times. Scholars and historians have been looking to journals and letters of women in order to understand their place in a particular time period, rather than viewing their thoughts and feelings through the lens of an author or historian who may have been biased. Therefore,it seems ironic that Mr. Fergus would chose this format for his novel - the format of what is true - and then bend it to his will. If I were to use thisbook for a class reading, I would dub it "fantasy", and not historical fiction, the genre Mr. Fergus probably intended. There is a Paul Bunyan-esque quality to May. She is not only larger than life but so one-dimensional there is no space for the reader to develop his/her impressions about the character. We are constantly being pushed to embrace the author's point of view, that point of view being: "Isn't she wonderful?!". Coincidences occur which defy belief, frequently coincidences meant to bolster May's credibility and strength in the readers' eyes.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

One Thousand White Women joins a peculiar genre, the fantastic-premised historical fiction, that includes beauties like Little Big Man, Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All, and I'd love to know what else. However, while these others (especially Little Big Man of course) are full fantastic novels, with challenging and entertaining insights into people's lives, a particular time and a compelling situation, One Thousand White Women is a Gothic romance of historical fantasy. From the choice of journal format, followed by a writing style that it is inconceivable that anyone would use in a journal writing (dialogue in a journal? Maybe, but not THIS dialogue), to the flat characters (Indian and otherwise) with their ahistorical attitudes and concerns, to the injection of contemporary public-school characterizations of burning political issues, the book fails to use its fantastic but rich premise to say anything the reader is better for having read. There are fascinating (and romantic) women's journals of this period--Susan Shelby Magoffin's, for instance--that make a better novel. This said, I read it all, which is something, I guess.

Unlike other readers, I found it quite easy to believe this novel was fiction. I am only thirteen years old, but even I was able to easily figure out that the United States Government would never trade white women to the Indians for horses, especially considering the attidues the U.S. Army and Government had toward the Native Americans in the 1870s, when this novel takes place. And while the heroine's actions would have been deemed punishable in 1870s upper class society, it seems hardly plausible that her family would have gone to the extents that they did. In fact, all plausibility went out the window within the first few pages of this book, leaving room for the author to conjure up a rollicking, if highly unrealistic, adventure with a likeable heroine, however unbelievable her plight. And the auther did manage to throw in some interesting details of 19th century Native American life on the Great Plains. Highly reccomend for those who like adventure stories and don't mind distortion of facts in their historical fiction. Those historical fiction fans out there who are sticklers for reality may want to skip this one, however.
