‘BIG LION: An Indian Emily Short Story’ By Jennifer Rengaw

The Apache woman Dancing Moon is a recent resident of Fort Davis, TX. She shares a room with Emily Eason, the woman who nursed her back to health from a sickness, but hates her son Lieutenant Tom Eason as his soldiers are responsible for killing her family. The Army brings camels into the fort for a layover for a few days and is accompanied by the Apache scout Big Lion. Big Lion, much to Tom’s disapproval, takes an interest in Dancing Moon, but Dancing Moon, fed up with Tom’s attitude and seemingly need for control, ignores his warning. But, as Dancing Moon finds out, things are not what they seem.
