Publisher's Summary

The Fetterman Massacre of 1866 marked the tragic opening to one of the longest and most dramatic wars in history. Told from the perspective of the gruff Seamus Donegan, this historically accurate tale describes the massacre in vivid detail.
At the end of the Civil War, a tremendous stream of soldiers and settlers began moving westward along the Bozeman Trail, cutting deep into sacred Sioux hunting grounds. For Red Cloud and his warriors, a bloody fight to retain their ancestral homeland proved inevitable. Seven-time Emmy winner Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant) narrates.


What the Critics Say

"The author's attention to detail and authenticity, coupled with his ability to spin a darned good yarn, makes it easy to see why Johnston is today's best-selling frontier novelist. He's one of a handful that truly knows the territory." (Chicago Tribune)

Almost Inaudible

What did you like best about Sioux Dawn? What did you like least?

A potentially great story to be told ruined by a pathetic delivery. Fetterman's Massacre was
massacred by the poor narration. It deserved better.

How did the narrator detract from the book?
