The Story of Blue Eye

ISBN: 978-1-894345-78-1


The Story of Blue Eye opens at a full gallop over the western prairie controlled by the powerful Plains Indian horse culture of the early 1800s. Without stopping a moment of drama, Trafford constructs the foundation of a western Canadian epic that layers Indian and European mythology with a perfect blend of history and adventure, all told through his central character, Blue Eye James, whose time-honoured codes of hard work, honour, fairness, and trust lay the foundation for an empire.

  • Finalist for the 2005 Grant MacEwan Author's Award.
