Rewrite history and promotes progressive agenda

I found the book very dishonest. It rewrites history to fit the current liberal agenda. Tells the reader that the Mojave Indians “allowed brothers to choose their sexuality” and minimizes violent clashes between tribes and the taking of slaves. How about some honesty!

It was weak

I found this to be a very short story that was void of so much detail that it read more like a summary with no real vesting in the story.

Too much speculation

I don't understand the high ratings. I was looking forward to learn of Olive's life while she was with her captors. Most of what was told of her experience with the Indians was speculative. We don't know if she was actually married or had children while with her captors?!? We don't know how she felt about her experience?!? I was disappointed. I'm returning it.

Olivie Oatman

The reader had a different style that took some getting used to. The story was interesting but short.
