  1. Someone in a thread mentioned the book Empire of the Summer Moon, which was a big bestseller published in 2010 Unfortunately, a lot of well meaning people have read this book without realizing this is little than racist drivel under the facade of scholarship The quality of the scholarship, however, is just terrible Here are some examples for those of you who have read the book or may be interested The author makes sweeping generalizations and straight up lies without bothering to fact check anyt [...]


  2. I am a Comanche and this book appalled me on numerous occasions The author consistently demeaned our tribe and labeled us as savages throughout the entire book This book has so many glaring inconsistencies and exaggerations it s hard to take seriously in any literary sense What is even disturbing is the fact that it seems to rely heavily on shocking the reader in an a horrible attempt to portray what the author felt was a realistic depiction of Comanche life I was hoping I could come away from r [...]


  3. This book was a good example of socialist History The author has taken a subject and told the story through a leftist prism Lot s of words and time is spent pretending the Comanches were something they were nota functioning nation with political and cultural ties among tribes The author goes to great lengths to revise the History of the plains Indians and particularly the Comanches It s all well and good if you have been through the indoctrination camps that pass for higher education in this cou [...]

  5. If you re hoping for a historical novel, then forget it and look elsewhere the real life stories told in this book are far too incredible to ever be used in a fictional novel as readers would simply find these real life events to be too unbelievable This isn t a particularly easy read it s dense and there s lots of it but the last 30% of the Kindle edition is entirely bibliography and notes and photos , but it is utterly compelling At times, I became a little wearied as it catalogued every singl [...]


  6. I heard about this book from the podcast with the author.Alwasy have been fascinated by history of the wars of 20 century in Europe and never before have read anything on other continents I must say it s a viscous encounter with native Americans by European arrivals On one hand due to their extinction you condone their fights over their land and on the other you are shocked by their brutality and unprecedented attacks.Still reading this book but I can say it s a very fascinating thought provokin [...]
