The Comanche WArs, Bailey, Tom
1 Bailey, Tom The Comanche WArs
Monarch Books 1963 Paperback Good 
By Nature the Comanche's were a war-loving people. Almost from birth a Comanche was taught to fight. To be a warrior was the greatest honor that could come to him, and to die in battle only meant that he would the sooner move on to the Happy Hunting Ground. The Comanche's had no code forbidding murder, rape or torture; nothing prevented them from stealing horses, cattle or humans. Unlike other Indian tribes, they never knew when to quit, even when the fight was going against them. They were mean, clever and treacherous. Known as the Butchers of the Staked Plains, the uncontrollable who defied authority to the bitter end, they fought Spaniards, Americans and other Indians, and were among the last red men to be subdued by the whites.

Cherokee Mountain, Claphan, Kirby A.
4 Claphan, Kirby A. Cherokee Mountain
Sylva, North Carolina Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, Inc. 2008 0981570224 / 9780981570228 paperback New 
Hi! my name is Kirby Claphan, I hope you enjoy "Cherokee Mountain," a book I have written to read to my children. They have often asked me to tell them stories about events in my life, and since I think kids should heart stories that are simple and natural I write about what I hold dear. Growing up in a cotton mill community in Greenwood, South Carolina I lived four houses down from my grandparents who were of Native American descent. You might say they raised me because I was always there listening to their stories of the old times and how my great grandfather caught turtles and hunted for possums and rabbits. Grandpa and I were always together ... fishing and visiting kin. He impressed upon me the alue of our heritage. "Be proud of your Cherokee blood," he would tell me. Once, while taking a test in elementary school, there was a box to list your ethnic group. I wrote "Native American.: When my teacher saw my entry, she made me change it. Very upset, I ran home and told my grandpa, who empathized with me. After died (I was ten years old), I spend a great deal of time in the woods watching and listening. To curb my hunger, I would eat acorns and wild onions to keep from going home....for all I wanted was right there in the woods. The way I write, the stories I tell are all because of my grandparents. They have shown me what really matters in life are the simple and natural things.

Skeleton Man, Hillerman, Tony
8 Hillerman, Tony Skeleton Man
harper Collins Publisher 2004 0060563443 / 9780060563448 Hardcover Like New Yes 
Hailed as "a wonderful storyteller" by the New York Times, and a "national and literary cultural sensation" by the Los Angeles Times, bestselling author Tony Hillerman is back with another blockbuster novel featuring the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn and Sergeant Jim Chee. Former Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn comes out of retirement to help investigate what seems to be a trading post robbery. A simple-minded kid nailed for the crime is the cousin of an old colleague of Sergeant Jim Chee. He needs help and Chee, and his fiancée Bernie Manuelito, decide to provide it. Proving the kid's innocence requires finding the remains of one of 172 people whose bodies were scattered among the cliffs of the Grand Canyon in an epic airline disaster 50 years in the past. That passenger had handcuffed to his wrist an attaché case filled with a fortune in -- one of which seems to have turned up in the robbery. But with Hillerman, it can't be that simple. The daughter of the long-dead diamond dealer is also seeking his body. So is a most unpleasant fellow willing to kill to make sure she doesn't succeed. These two tense tales collide deep in the canyon at the place where an old man died trying to build a cult reviving reverence for the Hopi guardian of the Underworld. It's a race to the finish in a thunderous monsoon storm to see who will survive, who will be brought to justice, and who will finally unearth the Skeleton Man.

11 Wellman, Paul I. The Indian Wars of the West
Modern Literary Publishing Company 1962 paperback Very Good - 
The Epic Saga of the White man's war against the red man "authentic ... vivid...dramatic the Indian could not understand the paleface's land hunger.
