The compelling, hidden story of Cathy Williams, a former slave and the only woman to ever serve with the legendary Buffalo Soldiers. "Here's the first thing you need to know about Miss Cathy Williams: I am the daughter of a daughter of queen and my mama never let me forget it." Though born into bondage on a "miserable tobacco farm" in Little Dixie, Missouri, Cathy Williams was never allowed to considered herself a slave. According to her mother, she was a captive, bound by her noble warrior blood to escape the enemy. Her means of deliverance is Union general Phillip Henry "Smash 'em Up" Sheridan, the outcast of West Point who takes the rawboned, prideful young woman into service. At war's end, having tasted freedom, Cathy refuses to return to servitude and makes the monumental decision to disguise herself as a man and join the Army's legendary Buffalo Soldiers. Alone now in the ultimate man's world, Cathy must fight not only for her survival and freedom, but she vows to never give up on finding her mother, her little sister, and the love of the only man strong and noble enough to win her heart. Inspired by the stunning, true story of Private Williams, this American heroine comes to vivid life in a sweeping and magnificent tale about one woman's fight for respect and independence. Christina Baker Kline says Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen is "an epic page-turner" and "unforgettable."

A beautiful story about a strong woman facing some difficult situations. She never forgot who she was. It was interesting to also learn more about the civil war and the Buffalo soldiers.

Recently emancipated Cathy Williams morphs into William Cathay of the Buffalo Soldiers sent to win the West. What a sassy and determined character! Sarah Bird has a vivid imagination. Stretched my credibility, although book at times very entertaining.
