Being a direct descendent of Julia German & having known her as a child I have lived with this story my entire life. Arlene's book however makes this true American tale of courage and survival come alive even for those of us who thought we understood it. Highly suggested reading for historians who want to realize the truth as it was on both sides of the Anglo-Indian issues of that time and/or as an inspirational experience for readers of all ages. There's history here for the reader to experience on every page. Thank you Arlene for bringing the definitive non-ficitional illustration of these events to the general public.

My mother in law is somehow linked to the German Family, through her mother's side. They are descendants of an aunt or uncle of the kidnapped girls. The story has been passed down through the generations, and my mother in law first read the book "Girl Captives of the Cheyenne," when she was a little girl. She's been obsessed with the story ever since, and will read the book over and over again. She did not know that this book existed, and so we bought it for her, and surprised her with it. She really liked this book, and she said that it gave some closure to the story. It answered some questions that she had had from reading the other book.

I haven't read the book, but I know I ought to read this one and the other one so that I can pass this story down to my daughter. I gave the book 5 stars b/c of the great response that I got from my mother in law. I realize that she may be biased since she feels so close to this story.

First I must state that the author, Arlene Feldmann Jauken, should be applauded for having the fortitude and wherewithal to write this book. Her distant relatives were massacred by a party of Southern Cheyennes in September 1874 (four sisters survived and lived to old age) and 116 years later she makes peace with relatives of the Cheyenne Indians responsible for the massacre. For a non-historian, the book is fairly well-written (with an occasional error in date, but nothing the reader won't realize, such as 1874 when she means 1875). The one thing that I found distracting however, was the somewhat frequent mention of God throughout the book. For instance, half the family is brutally killed but we are reminded every now and again that God was looking out for the survivors. Of course, one must ask, if God was looking out for anybody, why didn't God save the parents and siblings that were killed? Please don't say that God works in mysterious ways. That just does not cut it. Whether or not God (or gods) exist, one thing is clear, we are on our own. Okay, enough of that. If you are of the religiously minded, my complaint won't hinder your enjoyment of the book. If you don't care for the God talk, the book is still worth reading. The author tries to be fair to both cultures and tells an interesting story. Again, for that she should be applauded.
