Love Forever on the Frontier

This book is based on the true life story of William Bixby, which includes his friends George Harris and Albert Spang and their marriage to three related women of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, Jessie, Sally, and Lucy. It starts with the parents of William, their homesteading to Iowa, and includes the lives of his brothers and sisters. From the 1840s to 1918, it includes wagon trains, the Mormons, the Civil War, the pioneer outposts for the Army on the frontier, the Indian massacres of Sand Creek and Washita, the cattle wars of Johnson County, Wyoming, and the settlement on the Tongue River Reservation (now the Northern Cheyenne Reservation).It starts with William's struggle to fight the Spanish Flu and turns into memories by his wife and his children. Historical information has been woven into these stories, but when that information was not available, then the best guess (fiction) was used.This book was created with a sense of spiritual guidance, and I hope it helps others understand these families and the saga of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe.
