Recommended for: History buffs

This is a wonderfully researched, beuatifully written, amazing history book that I couldn't finish because the graphic descriptions of violence against innocent people (especially children) kept getting to me- to the point that I was having trouble concertrating on other things. Basically, in the interest of not spending my days in a sad haze, I gave up on this book. I might try reading it again at a different point in my life.

Alford Wayman Have you read the book The Dulknives of Pine Ridge. You may like that better. Less descriptive and written well. I just got this for my nook and plan to read it next month

Armand Thanks for the suggestion Alford!
