True West

    Historically delusional

    The author of this book writes from a delusional view that is borderline absurd. Unsubstantiated instigating Confederates are the main cause given for the plains attacks on westward settling white Americans and the politically aimed charges of foes of John Chivington after the attack are the major reason the U.S. government and history today labels Chivington a murderer. There is much conjecture and delusional thought given in defense of Chivington while discounting eyewitness statements, pre-attack statements, physical evidence, and damning statements by Chivington himself that this book proved to be unbelievable and a major dissapointment.
