What is up with the rape? I do not understand why there needs to be rape in a story.

While away at eighteen, a Crow war party attacked the village and his parents were among the dead. He led a war party of Blackfeet that tracked and found the attackers. In the battle, he killed two.

The Blackfoot Trail

Suspenseful and intriguing novel. MR. West has a way with words that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A great way to enjoy the wild west from the comfort and safe abode while vicariously living the exploits of such fearless characters. I would recommend this novel to everyone blessed with the ability to read.
