I found this book to be very interesting and easy reading. The stories move along without boring commentary but with just the facts as they were remembered by the indians and written down by the earlier pioneers and now compiled in this book to make very exciting reading. I really enjoyed it and didn't put it down for long until it was finished.

The book is laid out in geographic and chronological order beginning with the eastern US. I have studied this particular topic in depth and did learn several new things. I particularly enjoyed the section on Chief Joseph near the end of the book.

Difficult style, a bit stilted because of the language barrier (both American Indians' Languages and the language terms of more than a century ago), but worth a bit of a struggle to "see" the times, the activities, the horrific atrocities (both between tribes, and visited upon Indians by Europeans) through the eyes of the Indians, not just White historians looking back. Most of us have studied 20th-century History books written by such authors when in school, and only in the last part of the 20th Century were those views seriously questioned in any but the best, most forward-thinking U.S. high schools, and better college-level American-History courses. I went to an unusually fine high school, due to a fluke in the drawing of School District lines; most students' parents made 6-figure incomes in the 1960's (not our family, but that's irrelevant here), and thus the teachers and curricula were outstanding and far ahead of the average American school. Before the average White American kid, I was being told that American Indians were rarely "savages" as Whites called them, that they learned the practice of "scalping" (which was much more unusual than common myth would have it) was taught to Indians by the Spanish, who also brought the horse, Syphilis, Smallpox, and other European diseases. In The Bloody and the Brave, however, I got a completely different (though not opposite; just more detailed, from a different angle) point of view.Read more ›

I found this book to be very interesting and very factual. There were so many little facts that I had not heard before. I would suggest this book to all,,young or old. The book is easy to read and understand.

Very interesting for those interested in the history of the demise of the Native Americans. They were, generally speaking, honorable and trusting - which in effect brought them down. Because, generally speaking, the White Man was not honorable.

In the past couple of years I have taken an interest in Native American History. I wish more people would do the same. It would really give us a better understanding of how this country came to be what it is. Native American influence is all around us and books like this one enlighten us.

Although this book seems to have been written for a younger readership, I found it to be quite interesting and informative. I gave it a 4-star rating, however, because I didn't feel it put enough emphasis on the women's roles, and placed them in a stereotypical category of "squaw" or some other subservient role. In most native American tribes, women played an equal role as men. Many were warriors and important leaders in their communities. All members' opinions were taken into consideration, and NO decisions were made without consulting the WOMEN.

Some of the stories were mythological in nature, and sort of "white-washed", I suppose, to make it more palatable to a young, probably white male reader. Native Americans were not and are not savages. Most were and are peace-loving people. Whites took EVERYTHING from them, claiming racial superiority and "manifest destiny". Who is the real warmonger? Who is the true savage?

This is a well-written, sort of "vanilla" little book that was originally part of a series titles "Boys Books of Indians".
It's entertaining within that parameter but not even remotely more than very light reading.
