Ostler’s short book tackles a big subject: one of the longest and largest land disputes in American history—the Lakota Indian claim to South Dakota’s Black Hills. Ostler attempts to be evenhanded—a novel approach to describing a dispute that has generated outrage on all sides for at least a century and a half. As if to match Ostler’s attempts at objectivity, George Wilson—generally an excellent narrator—delivers this account in a slow monotone. Still, the narration is clear and easy to follow, and Wilson’s mispronunciation of a few legal terms will bother only lawyers. Overall, this is a good introduction to an important dispute.
