Regardless of its historical value, this book pays too much attention to detail while it seems to ramble on and on.......
Interesting; hard to put down. A look at the Sioux 'uprising' in 1876.

He kills anyone mercilessly, both from anger and to protect what he believes he has gained. He does have anger issues but few know how to calm him. Alas, in some cases he cannot be calmed. Homestly though, he just wants acceptance for who he is but he is unable to show his compassionate and caring side for fear of looking weak. Most of his antics steam from his anger, which could be caused by anything from a tree to a Clanmate.<br>&star History * Abattoir was born from an unexpected kitting to Spring/Life at BC. He has never met his father, who was killed during his antics at RC by Panther. From a young age, he never liked his adoptive brother, because he was of no real relation to him, or so he is left to think. At 2 moons, he met Slick. They lived together as loners, often training, for a moon before joining the Revolution with Grim as leader. Slick convinced Grim to let the pair be mentour and apprentice. At five moons, they talked to the deputy, Jay, to make Abattoir a warrior. Jay relented, if Abattoir could beat him in a spar. To Jay's embarressment, he did win, quickly rendering Jay helpless. Abattoir visited BC to kill his mother, which he succeeded at. He didn't know until later that Slick had fallen for Life. Moons later, as Revolution died down, Abattoir left to be a loner again, long after Slick's disappearance. Abattoir made few reappearances, sometimes at DC, sometimes to visit his brother at BC. He found Ferns again later. He thought he'd fallen for her but he didn't realize it was her sister he was in love with. Shortly after the pair restarted The Revolution and Ferns refound her kits, he broke their friendship and her trust, forcemating her. After found mentouring her daughter still, Ferns forced him out. Abattoir continued training his apprentice anyway in his den. Abattoir found Clockwork whike she hunted a quarter moon later, explaining to her his reasons. She was mad awhile but her heart still loved him. She finally believed him and they became mates. They forced to keep apart for awhile until Abattoir convinced Ferns to let him back. When telling Ferns who his mate was, she was shocked, and disappointed, but she was not upset. Now Abattoir feels pressure from everyone, Ferns, Clockwork, even the Clan as a whole, feeling like he caused too many problems. The guilt of knowing that has pushed him from Clockwork some, as well as his friends.<p>&star Themesong * Get Up by Korn, Afraid by NBHD<br>&starf Siggie * look up at title idiot!<br>&star Friends * |\|/|etal, *:*oxin, Sl&iota<_>ck, Str&iota<_>k&iota<_>ng<br>&starf Enemies * if you keep it up you will be<br>&star Heroes * Slick, Life<br>&starf Likes * not being annoyed, his relationships, sparring and attacking<br>&star Dislikes * BC, being annoyed, RELIGION, not getting his way<p>~&Dcy&beta&dcy
