KIRKUS REVIEW

Probably this amazing story will reach only a very few of the people who should read it. And yet it is one of the great sagas of all time -- the trek of a fearless band of people to whom home and freedom meant infinitely more than death. The Cheyennes, aggostomed to their Hills and woods of the Power River district in the Black hills, and faded in Indian Territory. Finally, when threats were made against their warriors, the whole 300 survivors set out to travel 1000 miles in enemy territory, with no more clothing than they wore, and with the knowledge that the force of the U.S. Army was against them. Half of the number reached ""home""; a few perished in successive fights; the balance died in the Fort Robinson massacre, a blot on this country's none too clean record. Howard Fast has told their story superbly.
