I checked out this audiobook thinking it was a fiction book about football. I was a bit miffed when I found out it was nonfiction about how the Indians were mistreated then assimilated by whites. But the story was well-told with all kinds of surprises for me and I came to enjoy it. The reader is good. Some characters emerge that I did not expect, like Pop Warner, Jim Thorpe, and Dwight Eisenhower. The book is well above average - worth 3.5 starts if I could give that. It is a bit longer than necessary, though, and at times I just they'd just get on with the story and skip or at least shorten some of the personal histories.
