This riveting novel takes place during the Battle of the Hundred in the Hand, otherwise known as the Fetterman Massacre of 1866.

 



“Cloud looked down at the blood on his horse’s withers, already turning dark as it dried in the heat of the afternoon. Then he felt a cold anger rising in him. Who, he wondered, created white men?”

First in Joseph Marshall’s groundbreaking Lakota Westerns series, this riveting novel takes place during the Battle of the Hundred in the Hand, otherwise known as the Fetterman Massacre of 1866. The story comes alive through the eyes of Cloud, a dedicated warrior who fights alongside a young Crazy Horse during one of the coldest winters, as well as the white soldiers who mistake Cloud’s redheaded wife for a captive. A beautifully written and fast-paced Western, Hundred in the Hand brings new depth to the story of the battle and the Lakota people.

Hundred in the Hand is followed by The Long Knives Are Crying in Marshall’s Lakota Westerns series. The Long Knives Are Crying is also available from Oyate. Both novels are based on Lakota history and culture on the northern Plains during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
