5. I think I got up to page 250 or so..couldn't read any more..

The massacre at Sand Creek is horrible, and I had to stop reading because I knew there was worse coming. But the massacre of Native Americans throughout our history is actually beyond belief. It is an unknown story to most of us. I grew up in the 50s where there was media hatred of Indian life. We had no positive views other than "Lone Ranger and Tonto"..
...If one really wants to know how the 500 groups of Native Americans were treated by the United States Government, an individual must read this book. Warning: it is probably one of the saddest books that you will ever read. And it is all true...
