Format: Hardcover
A table read is when actors get together and read the screenplay as the characters. Ironically the screenplay was written before the novel. We did the table read in front of a audience... They Loved It. I read for the character Trooper Augustus Walley. It was an amazing feeling to find myself part of the action. I was able to sit down and talk with the author Erich Martin Hicks, he has a true and personal insight into the history of the Buffalo Soldiers... I'm enjoying the novel now. Purchase a piece of American History... Listen out for Film/ Mini Series.

EXCELLENT READ. Really enjoyed this book. Thanks to the author for writing about some of our forgotten American History, the BUFFALO SOLDIERS. Would love to see this book a must read in high schools.

The author has brilliantly captured a focal point of history that many would never have known. Through his eyes and research, the reader is able to experience the tenets of hatred and humiliation, joy and pride of the 9th Calvary of Buffalo Soldiers. Although it takes a minute to adjust to the author's writing style, once engaged, the story is a page-mover, from beginning to end. I especially appreciate the artifacts included in the bibliography at the end of the book. Historically--a powerful story that needs to be told over and over again. Grammatically--a proofreader with a fresh eye is needed to overcome some of the errors--though not glaring, give the reader pause to determine what is meant. From what I understand from those who read, Fifty Shades of Gray, grammatical accuracy plays no part in telling a good story. It is the passion that engages and holds the reader's attention.

Keep writing and sharing the history through your special lens so we can see what you see!

Format: Paperback
I read Rescue at Pine Ridge in two days and struggled, in those two days, to put the book down. What an amzing read this book turned out to be. I highly recommend this book be implemented into our schools. Erich's portrayl of this part of our history is astounding. Throughout the book I almost felt like I was right there sitting with the cavallry awaiting our next orders. I could almost smell the buffalo hide coats they received for winter and I could almost feel the cold in my bones. I was captivated from page one and, with Erich's amazing style of writing, remained captivated through to the end. I highly recommend this book!

RESCUE at PINE RIDGE: Based on a True American Story, is an excellent novel. The author takes great care in his use of words allowing us to actually feel as though we were there. I give it FIVE STARS as I believe it's time that we expand our knowledge past the point we were taught through School and College. There's always more to the actual story but we are only told the truncated story. My Grandfather taught me to keep digging to fully understand the story. A College Professor also said in his lectures that there is ALWAYS more to the story and challenged us to find it. This book appears thoroughly researched and it gives us a great view of the Buffalo Soldier, their life, their importance in the West, how others viewed the Black as a Blue Coat, as well as their contribution to History. This novel is an Excellent, Entertaining, Easy read.

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding book. I recommend "Rescue at Pine Ridge" by Mr. Erich Hicks to anyone and everyone looking to read a great book with a great story. This is a great piece of history. The history of the african american is hard to find and good information is even harder. Mr. Hicks has done a great deal of research and done a outstanding job putting this book together. Thank you for sharing this book with us all. I am a retired United States Marine and a person that know history is very improtant. Thank you, Semper Fi

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By H. Crawford on September 20, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this marvelous novel. As the web master for the Greater Washington, DC Chapter and for the El Paso, Texas Chapter of the 9th & 10th (Horse) Cavalry Association, I review, study, write, lecture and read about the four Buffalo Soldier regiments on a daily basis. Some of my best research is drawn from the organizational returns filed by the officers upon their return from patrols, so this novel brought to life those same dry Army reports. Mr. Hicks' novel was akin to viewing the great John Ford's motion picture, "Sergeant Rutledge", except in written form. Bravo Mr. Hicks, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the amazing Major Guy V. Henry, the 9th Cavalry and that exceptional unit known as Troop K, 9th Cavalry (Horse). Using this novel as the screeplay, with no need for editing, would make a tremendous motion picture. Can you imagine today's top actors bringing this story to us in blu ray. Oboy!!!!

This a very good read. all high schools,colleges and universities should make this a requirement. This is a part of the military you don't hear must about. These were very brave and strong soldiers they had to put up with a lot racism but they still got the job done!!!. You willn't be disappointed with this book. If we don't keep this part of history alive, it will get lost.
