Livin' On the Right Side of the River From Pags!
To be fair it is bad work on my part to not recommend a book. That period is my primary area of study and I hate to see people put off it by certain works. Read it, for Brown has a great style, but back stop it with other less emotional works.Got turned onto "bury my heart" at the beginning of the year because I finished up a couple books about Custer and Crazy Horse right at the end of last year. Overall I don't disagree with your take.
