The thing that most struck me was that they were literate, actually well educated for the period. They not only understood the Indians but respected them, in the Indian way. Unfortunately, the white men who were sent to"tame" or kill the Indians never took the advice of these men.
This book is insightful as well as entertaining and is an easy read. I hope you will enjoy it.
Quite different t from what was, is taught in public schools.
A pretty good read.
