Summary (From the publisher):

The war between the white man and the Cheyenne was over. Then the killing began...

Exiled from his Northern tribe, sent to the Southern Cheyenne as they were leaving their ancestral ways behind, Panther Burn saw his people becoming slaves, and knew he had found a war. Scarred by an Indian ambush, Jubal Bragg led a vicious frontier militia, and knew, when he saw the wild, bare-chested Panther Burn ride into Castle Rock, that killing was at hand.

A lie, an act of violence, and then a senseless slaughter turn Panther Burn into a renegade and Bragg into a murderer. Now, between two men and two cultures, the last epic struggle of the frontier has begun. And when it is over a generation later, a story of courage, passion, love and tragedy will haunt the Western wind forever.

Sacred is the Wind is Kerry Newcomb's masterful saga based on real events from 1865 to 1895 - the story of lives lived and lost at a bloody turning point in the history of a land.
