Sargent, Jr. "The history of the United States would have been very. different if there had been an Indian Genghis Khan. Together we can keep the Wasichu from this land. White Buffalo Woman’s husband had agreed with him, as nearly all of the Lakota had. As for those who disagreed-she did not want to think of them. Touch-the-Clouds demanded loyalty.

I couldn't wait to see what each next step was in this alternate history. I was a little disappointed in that so much of the action was guided by visions rather than individual intellect of very smart, foreseeing Indians. I would love to read more of this type of work.

Pamela Sargent's afterward may explain what the other reviews find troubling.

Sargent wonders what-if America had less good luck. Not quite, "What if God took special care of small children and drunks, but NOT the USA?"

A convincing Indian victory in the 1900s would require more than a small nudge - Washington accepted the Royal commission he was not offered, or perhaps was killed in a small, nasty skirmish between State forces. Myself, I think she overdid it. She imagines large numbers of ordinary folks who embrace Communist politics, not because there is no Homestead Act or very cheap land at land offices, but because they see some goofy conspiracy by a very few nasties to profit from unregulated freight rates and speculating in land they know to be worthless.

The necessary "we are all one race" identity may be the worst realized. She rejects the Ghost Dance, cross tribal messianic charisma, with a surprisingly Carlyle Great Man, who somehow transcends his own tribal identity and just as magically meets broad-to-universal acceptance by soi disant red brothers.

The racial, skin color identity is almost as painful as trivializing the reality of tribal, band or even family self identification.

Then there are the clunkers - not the Stanton assasinated Lincoln conspiracy, but first KKK Southerners with Bedford Forest and his veterans needing Apache trainers, let alone recognizing their need and finally finding a way to assimilate such aid (think Lawrence teaching tribesmen to pick up and shoot Turkish rifles, without first learning to load, let alone maintain -only backwards).

Officers with shouldered bayonets. Republics that must add "autonomous" - Lenin, Stalin and the modern left's loss of coherent language, or 19th Century Americans with a modern sense that "sovereign states" is a joky oxymoron.

Still and all, I think the very neat author succeeds - we have had exceptional luck,and it's too easy to lose that luck in a fuzzy, vulgar determinism, losing the sense of both luck and causation.

What a waste. A promising idea that never comes close to maturity. You keep waiting for the characters to gain depth or for the descriptions and action scenes to climb above the level of a park brochure as you wade through page after page after page. Some of the sections are simply boring. The idea is clever but never truly works. The appearance of historical figures within an alternate history tale is usually one of the high points of the reading but does not offer a pay off here. Most of them walk briefly across the stage and disappear. The main characters are two dimensional and unconvincing. The reader never really cares what happens to them because they are cardboard cut outs without any real emotional anchors to give them depth. The action scenes are awkward and slow and the climatic battle that is foreshadowed throughout the first three quarters of the novel never materializes. I was extremely disappointed.

For a look into what did or did not happen to the Native Americans a long time ago. How they were treated as savages because they were not understood in the way that they did things differently than any other nationality. They lived off the buffalo that were numbered in the thousands. They used every bit of the buffalo to making tents, feeding themselves, dried meat, etc. Nothing was wasted. If you want to learn something about their lives this is a book to read. It's only for the interested about Native Americans and how they were taken advantage of and given land to live on that even the white man would not have.
Mr.Bean
A good rain soaked saturday read.

A bit lacking in detail as to how advanced rockets would stand up to a central government backed army.

This was all in all a second war between the states only this time between east and west.
Mallador
Trash novel that makes you think. Great read and great ideas.
Fek
An interesting view of the Indian Wars. A little far fetched but entertaining.
