It is 1879 in pioneer Michigan. Joseph Brock trades his whiskey directly to young Indian braves for valuable pelts. By day, he requires his beautiful stepdaughter, Nancy, to accompany him on his whiskey runs. Joe not only cheats the youths, but he introduces them to a substance that damages their lives. Chief Running Fox warns Joe to stay away and confronts him in Nancy's presence. She admires the chief's concern for the young members of his tribe and his self- control in dealing with her devious stepfather.
Nancy misses her real father and feels her mother remarried in haste. In the evenings, Joe demands that Nancy sing for drunken men at his saloon where he introduces her as Naughty Nancy. Her eyesight is poor without her glasses. She intentionally doesn't wear them in order to avoid eye contact with the boisterous men who humiliate her with their chants.
The flow of whiskey from Joe to the Lakota and Chippewa braves increases. Tragedy results when two drunken young men rape a young Indian maiden. The Lakota and Chippewa tribes are rival tribes, but when Running Fox punishes the braves, the Chippewa Chief supports him. Running Fox must curtail Joe's underhanded trading schemes. A single arrow would do it, but Running Fox must protect Indian land from white settlers without inflaming the entire white community. In an act of vengeance, he kidnaps Joseph's daughter, Nancy.Read more ›
I've read fanfic better than this. I've WRITTEN fanfic better than this. The only value I got from this book was an evening's amusement, reading some of the truly awful lines aloud to friends for laughs. Maybe I'm being overcritical of what amounts to soft core porn for bored housewives, but I like my erotica with at least a modicum of intelligence. This falls far short of the mark. Don't waste your time.
One of my favorite parts about this book is saving Nancy's mother, killed the stepfather, Joe and best of all - marriage.
