Well researched concerning the trials of Plenty Horses for the killing of Lieutenant Edward Casey, and of the Culbertson brothers for the killing of Few Tails. Very poorly researched account of Wounded Knee relying exclusively on the work of other secondary sources. Disappointing that modern historians so readily accept the work of earlier authors rather than take the time to pour through the volumes of testimony and first person accounts that detail that American tragedy. Rather than study and report on a well recorded historical record, so many authors are satisfied with recording what they have come to believe, and want their readers to believe, a politically correct and socially acceptable version of events.
