    Greasy Grass A Story of the Little Bighorn by Johnny D Boggs Based on personal accounts and court board of inquiries, personal letters, testimonies, family histories of participants from young Lakota women warriors and Chief s to lowly american soldiers who were freshly arrived immigrants, to wily civil war veterans with some very canning solutions a type of cunning veteran soldiers have even soldiers wives who were a over the bullshit army propaganda and sickened at several individuals, but as army wives completely understood that the army s honor trumps all absolutely the army can t be tainted by any real truths All of this information Boggs has formed into a story that was easy to follow even though it s a seemingly well known story it all seemed fresh to me, my only complaint well not really a complaint but a wish is that it was a little bit longer and certain parts fleshed out a bit it came to an end very quickly It has some very intense b...

    I don t know what the reading experience is like, but listening to this book read by a full cast is an exceptional experience Most of us are familiar with the Battle of the Little Big Horn named for the river called the Greasy Grass in the Lakota tongue where Custer s ego led to the massacre of the 7th Cavalry by a much larger force of Lakota and Cheyenne in 1876 Nine narrators inhabit the 47 characters, and their memorable performances immerse listeners in compelling first person accounts from both the army s and Native American s points of view A wide range of historical characters are represented from Custer, his generals, and soldiers to Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and even Custer s wife Libbie The story is told in short pieces from various points of view, and that makes it feel so immediate Custer s braggadocio sets the stage for the debacle, while his soldiers and generals bick...

    Never before have I read via audio a book about the battles along the Little Big Horn that carried such heart wrenching power Quite simply, this is the most stunning work of historical fiction I ve seen, and I found myself caught up in the anguish, fear, confusion, and resignation of the people Johnny D Boggs has brought to life It s a matter of literary genius to voice such diverse characters, from native American warriors, to teenagers, from the spoiled Mrs Custer, to a woman searching for her husband following a battle, from an Italian transplant who speaks little English but is charged with delivering a desperate plea for help, to a hardy Irishman who, driven by thirst, takes part in a heroic run for precious water I hoped to hear accounts, and recount history through this book, and instead, felt the sting of gun smoke and alkali dust, and saw the bat...

    Greasy Grass is a work of genius, nothing short of poetry, albeit, violent poetry in a violent time Told through the eyes of both whites and natives, Johnny Boggs lays bare the sentiments of his characters, fictionalized, of course, but well researched Excellent.

    In GREASY GRASS multi award winning western novelist JOHNNY D BOGGS tells the story of probably the most famous event in the American Indian Wars the battle of the Little Big Horn, aka Custer s Last Stand And he does it in 50 or so short chapters, each told from a different first person viewpoint The novel is narrated by participants on all sides of the conflict And rank doesn t carry here a Cheyenne woman, a Sioux boy or a lowly private or trumpeter in Custer s Regiment rate as much space as the famous players like Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Captain Benteen or Custer himself As far as I can tell all the narrators are historical so GREASY GRASS is faction non fiction novel than straight fiction so I was afraid this might just be a dry re cycling of facts And, as a novelist myself, I would have thought this format wouldn t work How could you possibly engage readers with 50 briefly introduced characters, who can never be than thumbnail sketches And yet it does work Boggs focuses on just the right aspects of these characters to h...

    I really enjoyed reading the book Greasy Grass Throughout each chapter a new story is told from a different perspective on the same battle being fought throughout the entire book It gives a new and rather cool perspective on the battle with each new chapter and it goes into great detail about everything that is going on to the point it may be too much for certain readers I liked this book a lot because it m...

    A fictionalized account of the Little Big Horn battle, this novel approaches the subject through the eyes of multiple participants some famous, some not so It necessarily has to put words into the mouths of those who could leave no written record of their experiences, but it does so in a believable manner that hews closely to the known or conjectured record The most moving sectio...

    This is a work of fiction and the reader is told that right up front It is an account of the Custer Massacre told in a manner that is much different from most of the Custerology I have read before.In forty nine chapters, the author writes...

    An interesting fictional take on the Greasy Grass Fight, often called the Battle of the Little Big Horn Based on many recountings of that day and narrated from the view of many different people involved, this helps to bring it to an individual, human level.
