The Heart of Everything That Is

The Heart of Everthing That Is

Review

The American West is one of my favorite historical settings. The Lakota, Sioux, Cherokee, and other powerful tribes provide for exciting reading. But it’s often difficult reading because the tragedy of the Native American experience is so depressing. This book provides an unique counterpoint though in that it chronicles the victory of Red Cloud and his unprecedented coalition of western tribes against the (U.S.) blue coats.
