This is the best book I have read this year. A skillfully written historical, depicting the life of a young Tory boy, who grows into a life he never foresaw for himself. Cut Hand, a young Yanube Indian brave has a physical and very real impact on Billy, one that lasts over the span of more than 30 years.
I laughed and cried as the story unfolded. A heartfelt depiction of what led up to the demise of the Plains Indians and the aftermath.
The love between these two men is poignant and uncompromising.
Beautifully written, the characters will stay with me for a very long time. What a privilege it was to read this book.
