Satanta’s Woman by Cynthia Haseloff is the story of a frontier woman who is kidnapped by the Kiowa Indians along with her two young granddaughters. One of the children stays with her and is adopted into the family of Satanta, only to go missing in the confusion of the Sand Creek Massacre.. The other child, a baby disappears into the Indian Nation.

As her life with the Kiowa goes on, she comes to understand their ways and sympathize with them. She and Satanta, the warrior that kidnapped her come to love one another. Eventually she is found by white soldiers and returned to the white world where she is reunited with her granddaughter. Satanta is taken and put on trail where her testimony saves him from being hung. He is however, imprisoned for the rest of his life.

A sad, yet touching story of the last days of the truly “wild” Indian, and, more personally a doomed yet enduring love. Written in a straight-forward, simple yet heart-felt manner, I was both enthralled and moved by this book. ( )
