If Jim Fergus was writing about Gettysburg, he would be the next Michael Shaara. I loved the book, but beware that this is sold under the title The Last Apache Girl also. His prose is so eloquent these characters become so real you call into forgetting this is a novel. If you love history and novels, The Wild Girl is the best of the best. If you are familiar with Charley McComas and Ben Lilly, you won't be disappointed. Although he is an excellent writer, I think his book titles leave a bit to be desired.

When Ned Giles is orphaned as a teenager, he heads West, hoping to leave his troubles behind.

I was blown away by how much I loved this book. While I found the prologue of the "author" (Ned Giles) a little unnecessary, I immediately lost myself in the world that Jim Fergus creates. Ned Giles is an immediately sympathetic character- a good guy, a nice guy, adrift in a difficult world. In spite of the book's title, this is really Ned's story, and it's a rich, complex, and extremely compelling one.

Surprisingly good read. I purchased this and the author's first novel "One Thousand White Women on the strength of good reviews. I planned to read them in turn but got bogged down in "1000". That's not a criticism of the writer but of my inability to appreciate his work. I put it aside and began "The Wild Girl", hoping for a better result. I found it and upon finishing it, picked up "1000" and tried it again. So far, so good. "The Wild Girl" is an entertaining tale that had me looking forward to times that I could read it. Though I am certain it wasn't intended to be of the "Western" genre, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading the like.

If Jim Fergus was writing about Gettysburg, he would be the next Michael Shaara.His prose is so eloquent these characters become so real you call into forgetting this is a novel. If you love history and novels, The Wild Girl is the best of the best. If you are familiar with Charley McComas and Ben Lilly, you won't be disappointed. Jim Fergus ' research is impeccable. To paraphrase the protagonist's description of La Nina Bronca, he has power over words. I found myself thinking of my dad, a runaway cowboy at the age of 14, who certainly would have signed up for this expedition into. Mexico. Bless you, Jim Fergus...the power to suspend disbelief is yours.

I normally don't read fiction, but from time to time I'll pick something up for a light hearted change. I love American history, and stories that are base on true events are the type of fiction I'll choose. A friend of mine had loaned a book to me by Fergus called A Thousand White Women. I loved it so much, that I bought The Wild Girl. I even loved this one more. The story is based on several true events that took place in the bootheel of New Mexico and South East Arizona. Characters are based on true historic people, as well as events. The book had me turning pages and skipping dinners. I loved the adventure. It's a good clean book that anyone can read, young or old. I'd recommend it.

I loved the book, but beware that this is sold under the title The Last Apache Girl also. Jim Fergus is an excellent writer and takes his research and story telling to a wonderful level. Although he is an excellent writer, I think his book titles leave a bit to be desired. I understand why the English version was sold under the other title as it was much more about the Apaches than just one girl.

I bought this after reading 1000 White Women by the same author, and once again, I was really happy with the novel. Fergus's style of taking some piece of true history, and rewriting the story, makes it educational from the perspective of taking us back to a time when human interactions mattered. (Unlike today, when I go out to dinner and see so many families all on their mobiles instead of actually talking to each other!) Fergus's characters have heart and flaws, speak in voices that ring true, and make you really care about what happens to them. On the thought-provoking front, this book made me pause and wonder why we "White Eyes" think the entire planet is ours for the plundering ... as we watch our skies and oceans darken with pollution, and our polar caps melt into oblivion. My message to the author is really simple -- please write more of this type of historical fiction. For example, I'm wondering what the story would be if Pocohontas turned out to be Carrie Bradshaw's great-great-great grandmother! :-)

I bought this after reading One Thousand White Women. While it didn't quite compare to 1000 White Women - it was a great book

I loved this story. I really loved One Thousand White Women, and was afraid that he would not be able to write a book as good. He did. The characters are well-developed, you become engaged in their lives and want to know what is happening with them. The book never drags. I was interested throughout.
I read this book many years ago when it first came out. I was happy when my book club picked it as I was happy to read it again. Jim Fergus is a very good writer doing much research on the Indians, military and the landscape. We had a great discussion.
