Personal account of two years living with western American Indians.
An edited manuscript found in the 1940s by a young Hispanic drover who married a squaw. It describes a life with and around several Indian tribes in the late 1870s that reads almost like a novel. Some of his observations might not be considered politically correct today but he is overall sympathetic to the Indians and probably more critical of the whites. I've read a considerable amount of American western history. I thought this was different and as interesting, informative and entertaining as any I've read. I'll probably read it again. The introduction by the editor is worth reading as it provides some insight of the author and the manuscript.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
