I am astonished at the light hand Dee Brown is handling this sweeping saga of the American Indians. It could be told in a different way condemning the treatment, heavily doused in bitterness and judgement. But that is not this novel. It allows you to make your own conclusions while becoming familiar with the large cast of characters.

I must admit the story picked up for me after the Trail of Tears and resumed in the Plains, west of the Mississippi.

Though the book written close to 40 years ago about the turn of the 20th century, nothing much has changed about our treatment of the American Indians and land grabs. The Dakota pipe line, the Bear Ears national monument.

We're a disgrace. Rather greed is a disgrace. Many universal themes in this book. Those to go to Washington line their pockets. When they fill their pockets they remove their hats and fill that.

True in 1905, 1875, and now.

Good book. ( )

A study of the arc of the Creek nation, from the expulsion in the 1820's to the 1890's with an upbeat ending. Dee Brown is a better historian than a novelist, in my opinion. ( )
