"Drum and Hoofbeats”

This new book, "Drum and Hoofbeats" is a history of the horse coming to America from Northern Africa. It involves slavery and two rebellions.

Horses were in America early in time, but became extinct. The path of the horse via Spanish conquistadors was a long voyage to America by Cortez and Columbus.

The Comanche Indians played a role by transporting the horse north to what is now modern Idaho. "Drum and Hoofbeats" is a honest account of the horse reaching America.

"Chief Joseph and the Indian Wars"

My new book, Chief Joseph and the Indian Wars covers most all of the major Plains Indian battles in the West. Chief Joseph was a brilliant warrior and major chief, who outwitted West Point generals. General Custer thought that he could outsmart Sioux Chief Sitting Bull and his 2,000 warriors and as we all know he lost. You can get your copy today!

As always I thank you for your interest and support. I hope you will enjoy these two books and my many others as I share even more history of our Native Americans, their cultures and lives.
