-Dr. Robert Mallett, author of Mussolini in Ethiopia, 19191935

"There is no confusion between the Nancy-George connection in the present and the Little Wolf-Custer connection in the past, and Newell does a beautiful job of weaving them all together. History tells us what happens at the end of this battle, but Angie Elita Newell makes it personal, especially after witnessing Little Wolf's evolution into a warrior worthy of the storyline's heart. Very highly recommended."
