    1. With the coming of the Europeans to America's shores, it was only a matter of time before the settlers whose ancestors were from the Old World would lock horns with the many Native American tribes that roamed across the Great Plains. With only a small amount of traffic going across the Santa Fe Trail beforehand, the discovery of gold near preent-day Denver sparked a rush of miners and others who would profit from the new discoveries.

    3. It took me some time to finally finish reading this book. I purposely spread out the time, as the content of the book is tragic. I was left feeling a lot of rage, anger, sadness and complete disgust mixed with shock at how Black Kettle and his tribe were treated at the hands of the white man. Although it's a sad book, it is one that is important and needs to be told and studied to fully comprehend America's dark and troubled history with Native American people. A must read for all.
