With horses stolen from the Spanish frontier settlements (not strays found on the prairies), the Indian tribes were transformed and revitalized. Horses made them more mobile, enlarged their capacity as hunters, and made them awesome foes in warfare. Northward from Mexico, the horse spread through the Plains and mountains, reaching central Saskatchewan 150 years later. The Cheyennes gloried in war, and the Comanches and Blackfeet became some of the most splendid horsemen the world has ever known. The Crows were the horse traders of the Plains.

It is easy to see why the author, Robert Bolen, has come to be accepted as a living authority of Native American lore. His apparent attention to detail and plain folks style of explanation has made his work popular among museums and libraries who depend a great deal upon the authencity of his work. Having just finished "The Horse Indians," I feel like I've walked the grass lands, tasted the buffalo meat, and breathed the smoke of the campfires. I think his work comes as close as one can to telling the true history of early man in the western and central parts of North America. For those looking to get a feel of what life was like before and even after the white man came to the area, I highly recommed both this book and its several other relatives. Although a fiction reader for the most part, I found his book interesting and informative, well worth a four and one half star rating.

Robert paints a grim but factual chronology of our northwest Native Americans, beginning with the Shoshoni and concentrating on the evolution of the Comanche into world-wide fighting equestrian experts, indomitable as their domain spread and evolved into the mid-section of America. Follow the picture the author projects of bands of Native Americans as their centuries old way of life is threatened by each other as well as the developing population of a "new" republic. Mr. Bolen peppers his work with numerous photographs, creating a living museum on paper. Explanation of tribal philosophy, materials, words, and proper names takes us from being a mere spectator of moving history to heart-stopping action on the battlefield. The loss of the buffalo, a concentrated effort by the white government ever encroaching, spells the end of the story we all know too well. You get the feeling, however, that though the battle may eventually have been lost, the war is not yet completely over.
