Readers, this will be brief.
This book was 400 pages of unrelenting misery. It was a horrific chronicle of battles and massacres and broken promises and broken treaties and unrelenting racism. It was absolutely horrifying and awful and yet I am glad I read it. It will probably give me nightmares but it is all true and one of the worst parts of a 200+ year history filled with terrible moments, most of them fueled by racism. And if you think we are doing better today... sorry, I have nothing more to say.
