3.5 stars. Review posted September 23, 2014 I’ll keep this short and to the point.Cut Hand is one of those rare books that I’m actually glad I was able to finish. After having been bored more than a couple times, I decided to put it aside when I was 64 % done. In hindsight, the break wasn’t really worth it, because I traded Cut Hand for a cheese-laden and oversexed book that did nothing but disappoint me. Well, I did mention that the smexin' in Cut Hand was terribly bad and I still believe [...]

Cut Hand and Billy Strobaw, two memorable amazing characters.A beautifully written heartbreaking love epic set in the early 1800s, powerful in its words and vivid images. Written in a form of a dairy it gives a perfect insight into historical events of this period of time as well as into the culture and spiritual world of the Native Americans. Though in the first place it is a wonderful and emotional love and life story of Billy Strobaw, The Teacher, who turned his back on his old world because [...]

***DNF page 24 of 273.***WHAT. THE. COÑO.I can't fall for it, it makes me feel stupid.I had great expectations on this book, but the first pages are just a waste of time. Too hurried. Too empty. Too melodramatic. I can't shake the feeling the author is trying to fool me into thinking the MCs' thoughts and actions have some grounds but they really don't. If you introduce a (view spoiler)[virgin youth with God issues but who has the inexplicable impulsiveness of touching the tied Indian's parts w [...]

Intensely moving beyond reason. A 'story' so visceral I was in awe and could not fathom it never happened except in that of this writer's fertile imagination. It's an intense historically acurate time period of a beautifully native land and its deeply reverent people that defied all gender boundaries in a very bruisingly-bittersweet love story. Two excellent viewpoints for thought:REVIEW #1REVIEW #2

This was a beautiful and well written story. I won't retell the background of Billy and Cut Hand as many reviewers have already. The story is really a combination of love stories all wrapped into one book. The love between Billy and his Native American husband, Cut Hand, flows through the book. Seeing the trust and respect Billy earned as The Red Win-tay was both funny and heart warming even though I believe that Billy was all man and not a flaming win-tay. Being a cross cultural story, there wa [...]

The simple beauty of early 1800's frontier America drew me in from the start. The direct honesty of the believable characters captivated my burning interest. The story is laced with real history in the making while following the lives of an American Indian tribe and its principal characters, a Chiefton's son (Cut Hand) and his loving white man and former captor (Billy, The Teacher). The hot sex scenes pepper a series of enlightening frontier dealings with the local Fort and its surrounding town, [...]

Great historical novel. Erotic without all the details. Tells the story of a white man that comes to be made a part of an Indian tribe at the coming of the white man to the plains. Great story, I learned a lot thru the history of this man and the Indian men he touched.

I saw this book was on the tops cart Thursday night and I think I have to read it. The description is awesome -- had me from the first line. But oh, this part:"Plunged into a strange culture where his lust for another man is not regarded as disgraceful, Billy agrees to become Cut’s winkte wife, an act that brings problems, but not from the direction he anticipated."

This is a powerful and serious book. Be aware that it will surprise and tear your heart out, just to mend it back in a different way.

*contains some but not all spoilers*This book is ting in a good way, overall i thought it was a good read and it had me cursing at Mountain Mist aloud for far more than i care to admit. The only thing that stopped me from giving it a 5 was that i thought " Ok, the books name is "cut hand" theres someone named Cut hand in the book , that's who he'll end up with!" that did not happen. They meet when Cut hand is the prisoner of Billy's hunting party and when he is left in charge of the prisoner bi [...]

Mark Wildyr’s cross-culture novel “Cut Hand” [StarBooks Press, 2010] was a delightful find for me. To explain, I usually shy away from “Wild West” stories because they tend to be little more than loosely strung together sexual romps, to which the plot only serves to move the characters from one tryst to another. On the contrary “Cut Hand,” while sexy, is a plot-driven, insightful look at “Two Spirit” customs within North American Native cultures. Moreover, since it places a whi [...]

Epic, tragic, and spellbinding are all words I could use to describe this historical tale set in the early part of the nineteenth century in the Wild West, just at the point in time where white men began the genocide of Native Americans in earnest. Seen through the eyes of Billy, a young white man who lost his family and ventures west, it is a story about cross-cultural encounters, curiosity about how others live and what they believe, and love found and lost, then found again elsewhere. I did n [...]

ok, a very different read, especially due to its "old west" language; but if you like anything remotedly to do with indians and old west, this is great.

**contains spoilers**This is an exceptionally well-written and well-researched historical m/m romance novel set in the early 19th century great plains of North America. It explores same-sex attraction across cultures--a white American and a Native American fall in love. Mr. Wildyr does an excellent job of portraying the winkte, a third gender present in many North American tribes under different names. I loved the ways that Billy Strobaw did and did not choose to fit into the winkte role, and al [...]

I expected this to be more of a romance read, but it's not. It's difficult to describe what the book is actually, but that's not necessarily bad. It was beautifully educational about Native Americans and it's written in the style of the time, and it takes a bit of getting used to - different speech patterns and the like. This made it difficult to get into, but if you stick with it, it's a great historical fiction. It is probably just a shame that I was in the mood for a light-hearted read; and ' [...]

I really liked the history and the portraying of the Native Americans but I would have liked more time with Cut Hand and the ending was really sad. Teacher and Cut Hand together were great! I guess this way was more realistic but I missed their relationship and would have liked, maybe not more focus on them because that would have diminished the bigger plot and message of the book, but at least more time of them together.

A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsCut Hand is something of a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, it’s a beautiful love story between two men who defy society’s expectations of them. And it’s a tragic tale of love lost and of the destruction of a people by a white nation who claimed to be superior. But Cut Hand is also filled with purple prose, awkward writing, a seemingly omnipotent narrator, and a first meeting based on rape.Let’s start with the good. Cut Hand and Billy are both endearing [...]

Although I had a couple of issues with this book, they were small enough for me to give five stars. This is such a wonderful story that truly kept me wondering what's next? The writing is strong, the characters are very likable, and as drawn out as the story is, it still had an even pace.I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
