    Book details

The June Rise brings to life the true story of Joseph Antoine Janis's visionary transformation from a Missouri farmboy to an advisor to Lakota chief, Red Cloud.

An epic story of Antoine Janis, a real-life "mountain man" unlike any buckskin figure ever created by Hollywood or the dime novel. Bill Tremblay was born and brought up in the shadow of the mills and factories of Southbridge, Massachusetts. After receiving his M.F.A. from the University of Massachusetts, he moved west to Colorado, where for almost 30 years he has been a professor in the Creative Writing Program at Colorado State University.

Review Text

  • By Leroy A. Peters on January 5, 2007

    I gave this book 5 stars, because I thought is was all that. It's a shame about Joseph Janis' daughter's suicide and murder of his two sons, but there is little he could've done. Even though I don't agree with his leaving of Christianity, the fact that he chose to stay with his wife and share the fate of her people is truely commendable and admired. I always have respected the American Indian and I always will. It is a shame what was done to them. I wish there were more men, especially white men who were ahead of there time during this great Nations darkest years. Mr. Janis' marriage to First Elk Woman is truly a love story. It reminds me of Into The West, with Jacob Wheeler and Thunder Heart Woman.

    I am a Direct Descendant of Joseph Antoine Janis and this book has given me an insight into the struggles of life as it was in the mid 1800's. I have found his grave and am thankful for this love story. I took my time to read it although it can be a quick read.

    Book was as described and I had a bonus of the authors signature. Pretty good read about the life of Joseph Antoine Janis, follows the historical records very well, and adds some.
