Book Overview

Thomas H. Leforge was "born an Ohio American" and chose to "die a Crow Indian American." His association with his adopted tribe spanned some of the most eventful years of its history--from the Indian Wars to the reservation period--and as interpreter, agency employee, chief of Crow scouts for the 1876 campaign (he was with Terry at the Little Big Horn), bona fide Crow "wolf," and husband of a Crow woman, he was usually in the midst of the action...

So good, I didn't want it to end

Having just finished this book, I wanted to write my review while it is still fresh in my mind. Marquis gives voice to Leforge's exciting life story and it is sometimes hard to tell where Leforge ends and Marquis begins. But this doesn't detract from the book in the least. Leforge's feelings and thoughts come through, even though they might sometimes be couched in Marquis' literary vernacular. I don't want to cite specifics about this book because the reader should savor his/her first reading without any parts being spoiled. Hugh L. Scott's letters to Leforge in the closing pages add a nice touch and demonstrate just how the old-timers felt about the "good old days." At the bottom of page 350 H. L. Scott writes of a very curious detail not mentioned anywhere in the book regarding the main character. You'll have to read it for yourself. As for what you will find in this authentic retelling of what it must have been like to be alive in the 1860-1870s, and the years following, not to mention all the interesting characters you will meet along the way. If you love this time in history, or just want to read a very memorable book, then you can't go wrong with this purchase.
