The novel takes the reader on a journey with one of the most highly disrespected regiments in the history of the United States Military, " The Buffalo Soldiers". The gossip and rumors they experienced were false due to paranoia and racism. The civilians, their Officers, the American Indians that gave them their name, who observed their bravery, gallantry and heroism, knew better.
Rescue at Pine Ridge is the story of the 9th Cavalry from its Congressional conception in 1866, to the rescue of the famed 7th Cavalry by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, 1890. The 7th Cavalry was entrapped again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later by the Lakota Nation, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. Only after enduring an all night forced-march in a snow blizzard, the 7th Cavalry are saved from sure annihilation by the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Solders.
The story concludes with the 9th Cavalry, K Troop, representing all the 9th Cavalry, being rewarded for accomplishments at Pine Ridge, and their other duties in the 'western territory', with Presidential Parade Escort and Ceremonial Burial Detail duties.
This story is about, brutality, compassion, reprisal, bravery, redemption, heroism and gallantry.
