The author has brilliantly captured a focal point of history that many would never have known. Through his eyes and research, the reader is able to experience the tenets of hatred and humiliation, joy and pride of the 9th Calvary of Buffalo Soldiers. Although it takes a minute to adjust to the author's writing style, once engaged, the story is a page-mover, from beginning to end. I especially appreciate the artifacts included in the bibliography at the end of the book. Historically--a powerful story that needs to be told over and over again. Grammatically--a proofreader with a fresh eye is needed to overcome some of the errors--though not glaring, give the reader pause to determine what is meant. From what I understand from those who read, Fifty Shades of Gray, grammatical accuracy plays no part in telling a good story. It is the passion that engages and holds the reader's attention.
Keep writing and sharing the history through your special lens so we can see what you see!
