"Not only in American history but in all histroy it is hard to find stories as moving, noble and dramatic as this one. The highest praise one could give any book about it would be to say that it was worthy of its subject. Cheyenne Autumn deserves that accolade." -Saturday Review of Literature. -"Actually, Mari Sandoz does more than just tell the story. With her customary skill, she manages to recreate a man, a scene, an event, a page from history, so that through her prose this great story of the struggle of a small band of homesick mistreated, half-starved Indians against the military might of a major nation takes on the stature of an American epic." -Chicago Sunday Tribune. "Because of my bias in favor of all accounts and stories of the Old West, I hesitate to state categorically that this is a great book, but I have a deep suspicion that it is." -New York Times In the autumn of 1878 a band of Cheyenne Indians set out from Indian Territory, where they had been sent by the U.S. goverment, to return to their homeland in the Yellowstone country.
