Delightful

Let me start with a PSA, this books language toward Native Americans will offend some. That said this book exceeded my expectations thoroughly and I found it delightful from begining to end.. I was expecting a dry account of some cowboy telling tall tales of his exploits and conquests. Instead I heard a humble man tell me a well written account of some amazing adventures as he works to survive as a slave, farmer, cowboy then as an early employee of the Pullman company. He tells some harrowing stories of survival that kept me on the edge of my seat and some laugh out loud humor despite the deadpan monotone of the narrator. Don't get me wrong the narrator does an amazing job, just a little to academic for such an amazing story.

Great Book

Very good book... a must read for anyone that's interested in how the west was really won. Written by a real black man who was there and lived to write the story. A must read!
