Publisher's Summary

Liza Ralston has had more adventure in her life than she ever wanted. Leaving her settled existence with friends and family in St. Louis to travel to the Big Sky country of wild Montana with her father, she soon wishes she could turn the clock back. When their scout is murdered and her father is severely wounded by thieves, the Pikuni tribe, led by Crying Wind, takes them in. But Liza wants nothing more than to return to St. Louis, despite her growing attraction for Red Eagle, the handsome son of a white trapper and Blackfeet mother.
Red Eagle has tried to help Liza and her father, but Liza has a mind of her own. She doesn't understand that the refined ways of civilized society in St. Louis have not yet reached the untamed land she is traveling now with her missionary father - a man who has secrets of his own that he is unwilling to share. She is left with no choice but to accept the help of Red Eagle's tribe to save the life of her father. But the events leading up to Baker's Massacre of 1870 force her to discover a new path for herself - a path leading to love, redemption...and revenge.
Will Red Eagle and Liza find the love they've been waiting for? Beauty, treachery, and danger lie Across the Sweet Grass Hills.
Across the Sweet Grass Hills won the 2002 WILLA Literary Award for Best Softcover Fiction, by Women Writing the West. It also placed as a quarter-finalist in the 2000 Chesterfield Film Project.

What a wonderful story!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It is filled with American History, memorable characters, and a wonderful story that doesn't disappoint. This author weaves a beautifully written tale of Liza and Red Eagle. Their journey across Montana is not just an adventure but a learning experience for both of them. It's a story that sticks with you long after it's completed. It's a clean read and is appropriate for all ages. 4.5 Stars!

Narration was nicely read. She is one of those narrators that grows on you as the story progresses. :-)

I highly recommend to all those who love Romances with American History.

My thanks to the author, narrator or publisher for providing a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review. :-)

Wow! Great Native American Historical Romance!

This is a fairly new genre for me. I don't care for western movies but I wanted to give this book a try. It is such a well written book! It sucked me in from the beginning. It was tough to see how bad things were between the soldiers and Native Americans. The prejudice between them was so crazy and unbelievable.

It took awhile but Liza eventually figured out that not every soldier was honorable and not every Native American wanted to scalp people... There are good honorable people in every race. As there are evil doers...

The book is told in multiple POV. You really get a good glimpse at each character's feelings and behaviors.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The author is extremely talented and she weaved such an amazing tale depicting how life was back around the 1800's... It is crazy to think how different everything was back then...

I'll definitely look forward to reading more books by Gail L. Jenner.
