What a sensational book Black Indian, Red Heart (White Justice) is in telling the story of the events leading up to and including the Indian War of 1862. The main characters that I couldn’t help but cheer on and root for are the Indians. I was taken on their journey and shared the awful things that the white man forced them to endure. Colton Sage, known to the white man as the Black Bat from Hell, Chief Little Crow, Red Calf and Tall Cloud were the Indian leaders who had to learn how to live in both the Indians' and white man’s world. They had no choice but to fight to keep the land that was rightfully theirs, side by side with the hundreds of other Indians who came to join the fight. The hatred of the soldiers was a battle they constantly faced, causing them to lose their homes and their families, and face imprisonment, pain and death.

I so wanted to go back in time and join their fight. It was impossible not to like each of the Indian characters and be as angry as they were over the treatment they were receiving. Author Frederick H. Savage has written a western novel with Indian heroes. Black Indian, Red Heart (White Justice) must be read to be appreciated. I do not want to reveal too much of the story because you must discover each twist, turn and surprise for yourself. I highly recommend this book for all fans of the Civil War era, all western fans, and anyone who enjoys a book that will keep you turning the pages long into the night. This is a true winner and deserves very high praise.
