A must read for those interested in discovering a dark, not often heard chapter in American history. Cheyenne Autumn shines light on a proud people forced from their land and pursued to near extermination by 19th century whites and U.S. Government. You do not find any information of this kind in school text history books. Your eyes will open and your heart will ache for the suffering, humiliation, and lost heritage of the Northern Cheyenne.
