"Not only a heartfelt expression of the author's love of horses, this fine novel also offers a detailed study of life among those Blakely considers to have been the greatest horsemen of all time....Although it is fiction, Comanche Dawn should be required reading for anyone wishing to know about life among the early Plains Indians." (Booklist)
Very entertaining combining the history, spirituality,visions, and truth about the greatest light cavalry the world has ever seen, the Comanche horseman.
Authentically historical in story and setting as they rode right through my area and traveled trails I have been on. I will watch for more from this author.
Tremendous job of "acting" from the narrator.This book is well worth downloading if you like Horses, the historical west and being well entertained.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, although as a female and bored oneday, I admit I didn't expect to... What a wonderful saga, gripping, thrilling and evocative from start to finish!!
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
this is a grand story if you like stories about american history and native americans (which i do)!
on the day of horse back's birth, the first horse seen by the tribe appears. this is an omen of how he will become involved with horses as he ages. his is the story of the horse were introduced to the indians and how the indians of new mexico become one with their animals. it is the story of how indians learned the the 'metal men' and the relationships between the 2 groups.
not only is this a well written, well researched, the narrator is excellent as well!
Great story, beautifully read
Meticulously researched, beautifully created. I loved this book, in the same vein as "ride the wind" - what I loved the most about this book is that th story is about the rise of a nation, not the fall. Too many stories about First Nations People focus on the fall / loss to immigrating colonies, rather than the power, drama, glory and sorrow of the people themselves.
Although the subject matter of this book sounded interesting to me, after listening to this narrator for about an hour and a half I quit the novel. Sad, that such a story can be ruined by the storyteller.
