Young Jewish immigrant Julius comes of age surrounded by the wild world of 1867 Nebraska. He befriends the mysteriousProphet John, who saves his life when the two are captured by the Ponca Indian tribe. Living as a slave, Julius meets the noble chief Standing Bear and his young daughter, Prairie Flower, with whom he falls in love. But Julius has reckoned without the arrival of his older cousin, Alexander--who, as the Great Herrmann, is the most famous young magician in America. Nor does he suspect the ultimate consequences of Alex's affair with Lady-Jane Little Feather, a glamorous--and murderous--prostitute destined to become the most scandalous woman on two continents.Filled with adventure, humor, and colorful characters,Magic Words is a riveting adventure about the nature of prejudice, the horror of genocide, and a courageous young man who straddles two worlds to fight for love and freedom.
