Describe the use of symbolism in the names of some of the characters in the story.

Essay Topic 2

The character of Captain Bourke serves as the point of contact between all the people in the story. He is a direct representative of the American government. He loves May. He respects the Indians. He commits the sin of the murder of an innocent boy when the final attack begins at the end of the book. He chooses to launch the attack even though he understands that the Indians he is about to kill are Cheyenne and not the Sioux tribe of Chief Crazy Horse, as he has been led to believe by Jules Seminole. He, then, becomes an advocate of Indian rights. Was the author's use of this character was realistic and helped the story? If so, why? If not, why not?

Essay Topic 3

Describe the book's ending and whether or not it is a satisfactory ending for readers. Is it historically accurate? What part does the seer's prophecy play in making the ending more powerful? Does the ending satisfy the bulk of readers' questions?
