    This account of the 1857 massacre at Spirit Lake IA is told from the perspective of Antione Joseph Campbell Joseph had a uniue perspective of these historical events as a translator for the US government He had a view of both sides of the conflict with his heritage coming from both White and Native American parents The author uses historical accounts to tell the story from mostly Joseph's conflicted point of view I gave this 3 stars mostly because I found the recount confusing during the first half of the book By the second half though I was hooked I felt an urgency alongside Joseph to find a clear explanation of what happened and why

    I've lived in Minnesota my entire life and never knew the history of what was done to the American Indians This book told the story in an interesting way while also providing much needed education about the early days in Minnesota Very well written
