As aslways Mr. Jonston uses a fictional person to carry his story. Seamus Donegon and fifty top notch army scouts after scouring the Colorado Territory for the mighty Cheyenne. At the junction of the Republican river and the Arikarre on an island the scouts find themselves surrounded by Cheyenne and they are out numbered 20 to 1. The battle lasts nine long days. This is a good book but as one reviewer said "why make this book fictional when the real story is just as fascinating" I agree. If you like good history of the Indian wars without reading 25 different books go to this isbn # 0803251866. The title is: GREAT WESTERN INDIAN FIGHTS.You'll love this book.
