Born to be a Holy Woman among the Cheyenne, Medicine Wolf’s life as a young child is saved by a pack of wolves that keeps her from freezing to death. From then on, wolves are her guiding spirit and her protector. As she grows into womanhood, Medicine Wolf is forced to live among whites for one year, in an effort to learn the way of the white man. But her heart and soul and her very life belong to the Cheyenne … and to the young warrior with whom she fell in love as a child.

Bear Paw, an honored Cheyenne dog soldier, risks life and limb to win the hand of Cheyenne Holy Woman, Medicine Wolf. Once their union is secured, Bear Paw and Medicine Wolf venture into a love story set against the magnificent days of freedom for the Cheyenne, but Medicine Wolf’s powers as a Holy Woman present a challenge to Bear Paw’s pride and reputation that threatens to tear them apart. White settlement encroaches upon the Cheyenne, forcing them into wars to keep what they feel belongs to them, and through it all, one white man, Tom Prescott, who fell in love with Medicine Wolf when she lived among the whites, must watch Medicine Wolf from a distance, aware she can never belong to him.

SONG OF THE WOLF is packed with the real history of the Cheyenne. The ending of this book is heart-wrenching, yet gloriously uplifting, as the spirit of the wolf and the powers of two timeless, unforgettable people step into history. Well researched, this is Rosanne Bittner at her best as she eloquently tells the true story of a proud Native American Nation.
