Just ten years after the Civil War, we find ourselves enlisted in the U.S. Army, hunting Dakota Sioux. Private Shafter gets promoted but must fight and conquer a tough Irish sergeant. Well-mixed action and exposition produce a historical novel taking place under the command of General Custer. Arthur Addison's bass voice crackles lightly, timidly turning out credible characters, especially a nasty drunk. Love blossoms without sex, and tempers ignite without four-letter words. Lead, scalpings, and the "thrup" of arrows create a compelling family audiobook parents could enjoy with their families from reveille to taps. J.A.H.
