Description

In Brothers of the Buffalo by Abenaki storyteller and internationally acclaimed writer, Joseph Bruchac, explores the battles of the Red River War from the perspective of both a former Black slave turned U.S. cavalryman and a Cheyenne warrior. In 1874, the U.S. Army sent troops to subdue and move the Nations of the southern plains to reservations and this young adult novel chronicles the brief and brutal war that followed. Told from the viewpoint of two youths from opposite sides of the fight, Brothers of the Buffalo portrays the events surrounding this conflict in the American west.
