"A novel of clashing cultures fought out in the closing decades of the 19th century, this is western historical fiction at its best and recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections." - Midwest Book Review
Author Steven M. Ulmen is a native of and resides with his spouse in Mankato Minnesota. He is a descendant of settlers who lived in Blue Earth County when the Great Sioux Uprising broke out in August of 1862. This Indian war culminated in the hanging of 38 Sioux warriors on December 26, 1862, which was and still remains the largest mass execution in US history.
I appreciated the history. The presentation in the form of a novel actually made the events more real. I would recommend it to friends.Published 4 months ago by Margaret L. Nielsen
