A Thousand Steps


 In 1855, risking eveything for a chance at happiness, two women - separated by class, race, and geographic distance - travel to the rugged plains of Indian Territory where their lives intersect in a stunning explosion of danger, death, and revenge.

From the snow-covered mountains of North Carolina to the untamed wilds of Indian Territory, A Thousand Steps takes readers on a perilous quest for freedom, truth, and love.

 "...suspenseful and engaging, Anita Bunkley took me back in time and place not often portrayed in our stories. A welcome change!"
