Interesting, strong, accurte.
The interactions between the indians and the whites.
Most were interesting.
No, then it would be over.
I listened to this and liked so many things I learned but was not totally engrossed the way some books have done for me. It was just...ok.
I loved this book. It had very interesting characters and a great story.
It maintained my interest the entire way through.
Just a great book. Comanche Chiefs, Texas Rangers and US Army indian fighters. There is no better story of the taming of the west.
I rely on current reviews before making my selections. It would have been informative if someone indicated that MOST of this book was background on Indian history and not a story of a young girl being taken by the Commanches, etc. While it may be historically correct it was not as described.
This book should be required reading at our universities because it puts to rest the myth of the noble peace-loving savage. The book is informative, factually accurate and entertaining.
I don't know what I was thinking about, but this book is really about a limited number of true characters that were part of the Comanche and Texas-American wars at the last half of the 19th century. I suppose that is really all the verifiable history exists, but the prairie seems to be lost with all the interest in the people.
If you are tired at night, listen to your books while on the move during the day.
