JOHNNY OSAGE by Janice Holt Giles


Email this review


Set against a background of the Osage-Cherokee wars this is the story of Johnny Fowler--the brother of Rebecca of The Believers, an earlier book. Johnny Fowler runs a trading post and feels a sympathetic understanding for the Osage. His love for a young teacher is jeopardized when he avenges a Cherokee attack on an Osage village, determined to wipe out a force which has inflicted unspeakable violence on the Indians he knows and appreciates. A steady, readable work, Johnny Osage is well entrenched in a rich historical background.
