Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine This striking history of the Comanche Indians tells much of their story, with a focus on a forty-year span in the late nineteenth century. This was their final attempt to stop the westward expansion of white settlers and the taking of Indian lands in the Great Plains. David Drummond gives this historical treatise the power of a James Michener epic. Drummond's straightforward but passionate narrative style imbues the text with the imprimatur of authentic history while weaving an adventure story for all time. His pacing perfectly matches the substantial variations in the author's narrative flow. There will be no dry eyes. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
