it was ok

Summary: The story of Fetterman's Massacre is or 1866 as told through the eyes of Cloud, a dedicated warrior who fights alongside a young Crazy Horse, as well as the white soldiers who mistake Cloud's redheaded wife for a captive. -- JCPL Catalog

I am intrigued by this story - it is essentially a traditional western told from the point of view of the Native Americans. However, I gave up reading it pretty quickly. It is very much a manly book. I believe anyone who reads and enjoys westerns a la Louis L'amour or war histories will like this story and I will keep it in mind to recommend, but this story was just not for me.
