ENGL 330 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "Reginald Brandon, described as young, athletic, and handsome, is the hero of this story. Reginald and his elder guide, Baptiste, come upon an Indian drowning after struggling to take three horses across a river. With no hesitation, Reginald dives in and saves the Indian who, forever grateful, calls Reginald his brother. When a rival Indian later attempts to kill Reginald, War-Eagle’s brother, Wingenund, repays Reginald’s favor by jumping in front of the knife to save his life. Through these circumstances, the three of them will forever be brothers, with War-Eagle insisting that Reginald must come visit their tribe. Upon arriving at the tribe, Reginald instantly falls in love with a native woman named Forest-Bird. Forest-Bird is described as a beautiful maiden, who is clearly in love with the white man's way of life. She studies the bible from a white man named the “Black Father” and instantly falls in love with Reginald, the first young white man she meets. This infuriates the Osage chief, Mahega, who wants her love for himself. In this novel, Reginald Brandon must battle the rival Indians who want him dead, while trying to marry the beautiful native maiden."--Ryan Cahalan, graduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 693, Spring 2018
