1862 Dakota Uprising realistically and intriguingly portrayed
Although I have been a resident of Minnesota for 49 years, the history of the Dakota uprising of 1862 was never presented in a way that interested me. Nightbirds, by Thomas Maltman, completely changed that perception. The book is historical fiction but both the settlers and the Indians actions are based on real events. As in any good historical fiction it is the characters and the readers attachement to them that turn the book into a page turner. Maltman's characters in both the settler and Indian camps are sympathetic and compelling, their behavior fascinating and their actions remarkable.
