Hello,

This one is also very interesting
The Comanches: Lords of the South Plains (The Civilization of the American Indian Series) by Ernest Wallace and E. Adamson Hoebel

I've been lucky to find it in a French edition in my country. ;D

And yes I loaned it and can't get it back.

I went on vacation last week and was unable to find a copy of this book locally in short order, so I purchased "A Terrible Glory".  It is an (brief) account of Custer's civil war military life, and a more detailed account about IW and LBH.  I'm about 3/4's through it.  I've found the book to be fairly easy to follow, and informative.  It is my first read on the Custer and LBH.  I'll put the Son of the Morning Star on my gift list for my b'day and the holidays.

One of my favorite reads is 'Comanche Dawn' by Mike Blakely.

Nagantino....I got the Son of the Morning Star, and the Empire of the Summer Moon for Christmas...in fact I got two copies of the Son of the Morning Star!

I've started the Son of the Monrning Star.  I'm learning a few things from it, and I really like the conversational style of writing.

Thanks again for the tip(s).
