Heart rendering and detailed account of the treachery and systematic abuses by white Americans, which destroyed North American Indians. this book is an almost endless litany of the horrific injustices committed to tribe after tribe of innocent North American Indians. the Invaders who saw themselves as superior, systemically & inhumanly dispossessed and exterminated entire races of people. the appalling genocide is a story that needs telling.
4 star because it read more like a history book, than a story, each massacre sounding like the last. this made the account a little dry to read, despite the mind blowing nature of this reall life story.

interesting historical tale

engaging read. un-put-downable!

Great narrator, who I imagine is the author, as the voice felt so authentic. the story is real, raw and very human. it will make you laugh and cry. life can be cruel and "systems" even more so, when they prevent institutions from recognising the humanity of those they care for. this is a reminder to us all, to treasure what we have, to be compassionate and to remember that rules should never be an end in themselves.

wise, intelligent, thought provoking

I don't think you can go wrong with this author. I love the way he looks at things from every perspective, as well as eloquently articulating a thorough analysis and exploration of each situation. I will buy anything he writes.:-)

wonderful concepts. spolied by monotone delivery

i loved and felt inspired by the ideas in tho book. but i struggled to maintain attention due to the monotone voice of the reader, which had no variation in pace or expression regardless of content. I'd still recommend as the content is excellent and other readers may not have the same reaction to the reader's voice as me.

An interesting window on the world of people living in 14th century London, through the eyes of a fictional, up and coming wool merchant.
Well written book and enjoyable to listen to. This book is part one, so the ending is s little abrupt, leaving me with an unfinished feeling. .. the lure of part 2!

I found it hard to stop listening to this story. I appreciated the immense work of the author to (as accurately as possible) depict life in the mid nineteenth century for the real life characters in the plot.
A great read!
