Sweeping from the austere beauty of the Rocky Mountains to the high plains, The June Rise brings to life the true story of Joseph Antoine Janis's visionary transformation from a Missouri farmboy to an advisor to Lakota chief, Red Cloud. Author William Tremblay creates a riveting collection of imagined letters by Janis that chronicle this pioneer's apprenticeship to his father in the beaver trade and his marriage with First Elk Woman, an Oglala holy woman, all the while capturing the spirit of the land in poetic descriptions, even as it becomes a killing ground during the Indian wars of the nineteenth century. The story turns to tragedy when his mixed-race sons, Pete and Willie, are murdered by the mixed-race sons of Janis's nemesis, John Reeshaw. After the battle of Little Big Horn, the U.S. government issued Janis an ultimatum: divorce First Elk Woman and keep his homestead in Colorado, or relinquish his land and share her fate in the Badlands of Pine Ridge Reservation. The compelling forces that shape his decision form a classic story of the American frontier. This novel is, above all, a love story of the first order.

Janis, Joseph Antoine, b. 3. Indians of North AmericaGreat PlainsWarsFiction. I dreamt of walking on their slopes, feeling on my footsoles how they must have risen, the plains an earthen shawl thrown off their shoulders. I kept among shadows of ponderosa boughs at the edge of mountain meadows, feeling what I now can only call a modesty that my dream body should not be seen. Yet I did feel eyes upon me, making my hair stand when it came to me how it takes a spirit to see one.

I gave this book 5 stars, because I thought is was all that. It's a shame about Joseph Janis' daughter's suicide and murder of his two sons, but there is little he could've done. Even though I don't agree with his leaving of Christianity, the fact that he chose to stay with his wife and share the fate of her people is truely commendable and admired. I always have respected the American Indian and I always will. It is a shame what was done to them. I wish there were more men, especially white men who were ahead of there time during this great Nations darkest years. Mr. Janis' marriage to First Elk Woman is truly a love story. It reminds me of Into The West, with Jacob Wheeler and Thunder Heart Woman.
