Probably not a good title for a review but that is what I thought of this book when I first started listening to it. I got into it a bit then and started looking forward to listening, and I wanted to see what happened to these outrageous people. This book is set in about 1868 as far as I can tell and the people are Cherokee and white, but all hill people. It is mostly about Ned's war with the white law but there are many asides and talk of how family life was back then. McMurtry is a talented author and if you liked Lonesome Dove or any of his other books you will probably like this one. I was sorry to see it end and will listen to it again when enough time has passed.

An incredible historical account of how the Cherokee Nation was put upon by the "White Court" system. Ned Christie was assumed guilty by rumor, Pres. U.S. Grant's improper handling of a volatile situation, Arkansas judges mishandling and trigger-happy Marshall's deputies.
