Yale graduate Thomas Benton McCabe is sent west to Missouri by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to report on the Cheyenne. During his sojourn, he saves Chief Spotted Fox's life, is visited by a Spirit of Vision, marries Night Bird Woman, is mauled by a grizzly, and learns the true meaning of courage. Michael Kramer reads this fast-paced, picturesque novel as if he were living it. Jordon's words bring the 1830s alive, and Kramer personifies McCabe, aka "Horse Runner." Kramer dramatizes the life-and-death struggles and effortlessly distinguishes characters, regardless of gender with a well-modulated but crisp and distinct reading style. Caught between the two cultures and lifestyles, McCabe's ultimate choice will fascinate listeners of all ages. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
