A beautiful story about a strong woman facing some difficult situations. She never forgot who she was. It was interesting to also learn more about the civil war and the Buffalo soldiers.

Recently emancipated Cathy Williams morphs into William Cathay of the Buffalo Soldiers sent to win the West. What a sassy and determined character! Sarah Bird has a vivid imagination. Stretched my credibility, although book at times very entertaining.
