Hundred in hand revised

Book Review: One Hundred in Hand: A Novel by Joseph M. Marshall III

When the English reached the shores of America, the power they received came at the expense of the original inhabitants of the land, the Red Indians. Many books have been compiled over the years about the Red Indians and the “white-skinned people” who so rudely seized their land, but the problem with these books is the fact that everyone who wrote them belonged to this. last category. Therefore, a touch of bias towards the latter will give us a one-sided history of the events that unfolded.

One hundred in the hand written by Joseph gives us the opportunity to hear the voice from the other side. Being the Lakota Sioux himself, this book is fiction but contains the roots and history of his people. This war-centered story from the book title “Hundred in the Hand” (also known as The Fetterman Massacre of 1866) is told from the point of view of the Lakota Sioux. This is certainly a dramatic departure from the usual interpretation of written American history.

The author incorporates references to Lakota culture, both spiritual and social, as well as dozens of everyday examples of military, hunting, and tribal relationships. One of the most fascinating aspects of the book is its characters, which are presented in an easy-to-associate way. The protagonists of the story go through all the phases that anyone would do if they were put in very tough situations, their people fall in love, get hurt in battle and inevitably die.

I found the book very educational and although it is a fiction, it was somehow more illuminating than the non-fiction stories on the same subject of the wars between the Red Indians and their conquerors. Cien en la mano is a pretty good read and opens up a bit of pent-up voices never heard before.
