    1. Like too many alternate histories, a fine concept is lost to execution Sargent begins to weave a counterfactual that assumes that Native Americans of the major Plains tribes unite sufficiently to repel military incursions in the 1870s, and that a Russian Alaskan agitator beguiles the tribal leadership with stories of the Khans But the rest of the book just falls apart with silliness and a ridiculously contrived ending If you can pretend that a cash strapped Thomas Edison would set up shop in the [...]


    2. An alternate history with its premise as what if the south revolted again after the civil war and the american indians formed as a solid group A good but not great book.



    3. My great passion is finding and reading alternate history novels I was intrigued that someone could construct a What if about Indian victory in the settlement of the west Unfortunately this book is not a very good attempt at it While the native Americans make some allies the idea of a native victory really requires deep substantive changes that this book refuses to make In population alone the native tribes are doomed in any direct conflict The idea is intriguing, the book isn t.


    4. Actually around 3 half stars It s a pretty interesting read and the characters are compelling enough There are some gaps in logic, but none that cant just be set aside for the sake of enjoying the book Pamela Sargent is no Harry Turtledove, but then, only Harry Turtledove is.


    5. Brilliant, though admittedly far fetched to the suburbs of Alien Space Bat territory, alternate history where the Plains Indians lead by a Lakota chief, Touch the Clouds essentially win the Indian Wars.


    6. Alternative future genre by Pamela Sargent Excellent writing which made me think about what would today be like if the American Indians had won some major battles.
