Publisher's Summary

Seeking to round out the compelling story of the American West, best-selling Lakota author Joseph M. Marshall III brings a new slant to the traditional Western: historical fiction written from the Native American viewpoint. This riveting story takes place during the Battle of the Hundred in the Hand, otherwise known as the Fetterman Massacre of 1866. The story is told alternately through the eyes of Cloud, a dedicated Lakota warrior who fights alongside a young Crazy Horse, and Max Hornsby, a white pioneer who mistakes Cloud's redheaded wife for a captive.
Beautifully written and reminiscent of the oral tradition, Hundred in the Hand brings new depth and dimension to the story of the battle and the Lakota people.


What the Critics Say

"Marshall has tapped into an old form and infused it with a slightly different brand of knowledge to produce a swift, compelling read. Simply put, if you like Westerns, you'll love this one." ( Washington Post Book World)

Not for cowboys

Is this listed as fiction? Clearly an alternative view of the "wild" west (not exactly west!). I confess I am a fan of the author and enjoyed the telling of this story. The story gives insight into both "sides" views and reveals weaknesses as well as strengths. Get away from Ray Meers' How the Wild West was won ..... please.
