Elephant Dreams Posted: January 23, Palo Duro Posted: January 17, Sam Owens from the Fort Laramie area who wanted a bride and was willing to pay her debts and her way to Fort Laramie.
Initially, I was also interested in the great Cheyenne half-breed, Thunder, until I realized he wasn't much of a hero. Thunder agreed under duress to help Brandy and the orphans on the wagon train to Fort Laramie, where she was to meet up with her husband-to-be. Even though Thunder was more than pleased to take Brandy's virginity on the trip to Fort Laramie, he didn't stick around to make sure she and the children would be safe in their new situation.
The excuse was, he had to rush to his sick mother's side. However, he had been away from his mother for many long years so what difference would a couple of days have made. Brandy soon realized that her husband-to-be, Mr. Owens, actually ran a brothel which serviced the soldiers at Fort Laramie and it seems that he wanted her to work in the brothel. She declined to marry him and also declined to work in the brothel.
Because Mr. Owens had put out so much money, Brandy and the other orphans had no choice but to become drudges at the brothel where they became responsible for all the cleaning and other chores. During this time Mr. Owens was cruel and threatening. Brandy and the children did manage to hold out but months went by and Thunder didn't return to check up on them.
Finally, Mr. Owens attempted to rape Brandy and she shot him dead - good for her. As a result, she was placed in jail to be tried for murder.egstelnephmindre.tk

Only then, did the story-line drag the big hero, Thunder, back in time to show off the lawyerly skills that were hinted about in the beginning of the story. He had taken law classes in Boston years earlier where his mother had sent him to become "white. It was of little matter to me that he came back at the end to save the day. By then, I was disgusted with him and his character. Good story - reminds me a little of Maggie Osbourne's stories.
