"Superb Indian historical romance"
In 1866 in the Montana Territory, eleven years old Carolyn
White watches her family and the other wagon train
travelers die from cholera. Frightened, Carolyn feels
hopeless until the "whirlwind" gently guides her to sixteen-
year-old Crow, Lone Arrow. He saves her life from a bear
by forcing her to enter a cavern filled with forbidden
treasure. He warns her to take none of the artifacts as a
curse will follow her if she does. Finally he escorts her
to the safety of a nearby fort.
Almost a decade later, Carolyn's adopted parents face
foreclosure of their land after a string of bad luck.
Carolyn believes her pilfering a gold arrowhead from the
sacred cave has caused the misfortune. She returns to the
Bighorn Mountains to find Lone Arrow' in order to return
the stolen item. Lone Arrow is protector of the mountains
especially the sacred treasure cave. He wants to marry
Carolyn, but seemingly distrusts her more than he loves her.
Fans of Indian historical romances will want to read LONE
ARROW'S PRIDE as the story line focuses on the relationship
between Carolyn and Lone Arrow. The tale never loses sight
of the prime theme as if the plot was the minimum but
critical prime path of a pert chart. The lead couple is a
delight and the support cast provides either depth to
understanding the key duet or propels their tale forward.
Karen Kay furbishes a strong tale that deserves plenty of
