The Indians Won Reviews
I really enjoyed this offbeat story of what might have happened if Crazy Horse had not been murdered. The alternate history story is divided in two periods, the historical part and a modern-day part in the new America. The action is alternated.Crazy Horse went on to be a great general and managed to unite the Native American tribes against the invaders. Down in the southwest the Indians linked up with the Mormons in Utah and so a block of land was left in the centre of the continent with the new settlers remaining on the coasts. How this is politically organised makes an interesting read and by the action story of the modern day we see the world that has resulted from this circumstance. The modern section is the poorer but the characters are still all well written. Cruz Smith is part Pueblo and makes the ideal author for such a story. Also read Stallion Gate.
The alternate history was very interesting. I actually wish it had happened this way. I found the writing style to be boring though. Too little character development. I wanted more personal stories intertwined within the narrative. Still not disappointed that I read it though.
This was the first book by Cruz that I read.....what a gem. Yes, the Indians win a war against current day US Govt. So well done. A hidden gem of a story.
