KIRKUS REVIEW

A spare, uncompromising account of military, via governmental orders, treatment of the Cheyenne Indians reviews the results of Captain Howell K. Weston's attempts to treat his charges humanly and honestly. Sent to Oklahoma, hungry and diseased, the Cheyenne, under Dull Knife and Little Wolf escape to their Powder River hunting grounds and hope they can stay there. But their record of killing prevents Weston from staying the command to return them to Oklahoma -- and massacre results. Impassive and impressive.
