Employing an authentic map from 1805 and decades of research into Cheyenne culture, Karl H. Schlesier pens a tale as remarkable for its historical detail as for the intensity of its storytelling. Whirlwind, the twin brother of Stone, disappears during a raid into northeastern New Spain. So Stone brings together Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Gataka warriors to go after his missing brother—but there are many things between earth and sky that oppose his quest. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “I have real enthusiasm for this book. Dr. Schlesier seems to see the world of which he writes with the eyes of an eagle. His vision is as once comprehensive and acute. His knowledge of the landscape and the people is authentic, broad and incisive. His writing is clear, precise, and fluent. When I read Trail of the Red Butterfly, I feel that I am there, more than a hundred years before I was born. Trail of the Red Butterfly should be read and reread. It is itself a celebration of storytelling.”

    N. Scott Momaday, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of House Made of Dawn

  • “Imagine your twin captured by technologically superior extraterrestrials. Imagine that you must slip into their world to effect his rescue. For the early nineteenth-century Cheyenne and Kiowa who must penetrate New Spain in this astounding novel, the task seems no less overwhelming or alien. Schlesier delivers immaculate historic and cultural accuracy with riveting suspense.”

    J. M. Hayes, author of The Grey Pilgrim and the Mad Dog & Englishman mysteries
