But one could come to the conclusion that the entire era was less legend and more Greek tragedy. From the megalomaniacal Colonel Custer to the tragic Wild Bill Hickok, Kit Carson, and the humorous Black Bart, the stories of these figures are far more morally complex and interesting than the short-shrift treatment they receive in the media and classrooms today. The western expansion of the United States and the subsequent decimation of Native Americans is often painted morally black and white in modern culture, and the figures that aided this expansion often receive the same black and white judgement. However, these characters prove much more ambiguous than what we are taught in school. Kit Carson, one of the most intriguing figures in the book, was a man who had grown up with Native American tribes, spoke their languages, married into the tribes and pressured politicians to end the subjugation of native lands.

This may have been the best Civil War book I have read. I did not. If given a choice I would not give a star at all. It was lost a little in this book, as there is another author on this one.

I read it for the entertainment. The problem is that it is not much different from any other history book. It's her imagination on the outside. I also learned much more about some of the personalities on both sides that added flavor to the names I only read in history books.
