Black Hawk War (Utah), 1865-1872--Fiction; Mormon pioneers--Fiction.
The Killing of Greybird is a vivid, well-told saga of the lost days of pioneer Utah--of the effects of war and ethnic hatred on a society learning to live Christ-like lives. The characters of this novel reflects author Swedin's careful attention to human nature; his characters teach us by overcoming tragedy through the grace of the gospel.
In the unfolding story you'll discover a wonderful character, David Halliday, unravelling mystery through attention to human nature and observation--not through simple plot devices. [from publisher's web site]
