I love this book after hearing about it on Simon Mayo Radio 2 Book Club. They loved and so do I. If you're interested in American history from 1800 on wards this is for you. The story goes back to when the Indians and the Spanish were in control. The story is told through the eyes of one family and there sometimes brutal history. I am not the best to review a book so if you're at all interested from that just buy it and read it :-). I am sure you will love it like the rest of us.
