Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

This program includes a prologue read by Bill O'Reilly

The latest installment of the multimillion-selling Killing series is a gripping journey through the American West and the historic clashes between Native Americans and settlers.

The bloody Battle of Tippecanoe was only the beginning. It's 1811 and President James Madison has ordered the destruction of Shawnee warrior chief Tecumseh's alliance of tribes in the Great Lakes region. But while General William Henry Harrison would win this fight, the armed conflict between Native Americans and the newly formed United States would rage on for decades.

Bestselling authors Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard venture through the fraught history of our country's founding on already occupied lands, from General Andrew Jackson's brutal battles with the Creek Nation to President James Monroe's epic sea to shining sea policy, to President Martin Van Buren's cruel enforcement of a treaty that forced the Cherokee Nation out of their homelands along what would be called the Trail of Tears. O'Reilly and Dugard take listeners behind the legends to reveal never-before-told historical moments in the fascinating creation story of America.

This fast-paced, wild ride through the American frontier will shock listeners and impart unexpected lessons that reverberate to this day.

A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

   Killing Crazy Horse by Bill O'Reilly
This book was a fast and enjoyable read due to the subject matter and Bill O'Reilly's writing style. It covers more than the killing of Crazy Horse. Many other prominent Indian Chiefs are also covered in this book. There is plenty of detail and from what I know, the facts have not been construed. It's an honest look at our country's shameful past on how we treated the natives of this great country.

   Great primer for general info, good read
The purists, I don't understand why they complain. Even if you get sick, get tested. The potential is great, said Robert D. Selbo, director of the National Institutes of Health. I learned much I was not previously aware of and the "story" is broad enough to add the context of history, Morgenthau said. Thanks to Bill and Martin for all the help.

   Easy Read
I have a student of Crazy Horse for many years and am always anxious to add to my considerable library. Made this purchase anticipation come true. He would have appreciated a greater concentration on Crazy Horse himself, not just the other Native American leaders who were included. There was no clear cut answer to the question, "What do you think of the War Leader?"

   Great Read!
The detail of the events and the conflicts that went on are always amazing. It makes you feel like you were there. There was no room for the Indians, ever, in the vast wilderness of the United States. 0 3171616 3171578 And then there was the other side, that is how sad to be free and then either be killed or sent to a reservation, because there was no room for the Indians, really, in the vast wilderness of the United States. Bill O'Reilly is a great writer, interviewer and problem solver. Thanks for the history lessons you give us!

   ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE
This one was a serious page turner, Tunick said. Bill O'Reilly really is an incredible brand with the killing series and they're all just amazing, but Killing Crazy Horse is the best in my opinion. I'm very anxious for the new season of the hit show, "The Sopranos."

   Another home run for Bill O’Reilly’s Killy series
Thanks to these books, I can read again. The pictures are clear and the writing is crisp. I believe I've read all the material. What I've learned most is that our ancestors were not wussies, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Yes, they had true grit. Yes, they were perfect, Taylor said. Even the Indians and blacks, I guarantee you, will find something to complain about. Yes, they used a means to end the civil war, but they lifted everyone, he said. We should all have a better idea of what got us here, and be grateful to them, he said.

   Excellent history of the great Indian wars
An excellent history, in the same genre as Bill O'Reilly's other books, reveals a lot of information they don't seem to teach in public schools. 0 14622 14622 And, just like the rest of O'Reilly's books, reveals a lot of information they don't seem to teach in public schools. You learn a lot about things you didn't know. If only the white settlers could have learned to treat Americans with dignity and respect _ and kept in mind the treaties that were broken, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   If you like the "Killing" books, You'll Enjoy it
I have read all the books. Some are better than others, but they are all above average and highly educational, too. I really enjoyed the book, the coverage of a wide swath of American history and Indian relations, he said. If you have enjoyed the others, you will enjoy this, but it is like ranking ice cream flavors. There are no bad guys, but some are more enjoyable than others.

   Very enjoyable and enlightening book.
Like all of his previous books, this one was an excellent and enjoyable read. It was very well written and very well documented, as well as being very informative, Morgenthau said. Like his previous killing books, it is written in the present tense which helps the reader become more involved in the events being depicted. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this type of accounting.

   One of Bill's best.
I have all of Bill O'Reilly's novels, as well as all of the movies made from some of them. If you think about it, Killing Horse would be a great movie. Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard do an exemplary job researching their subjects, and just as great a job in getting the information into print! While I can't imagine who may be the next target, I will be among the first to purchase a copy.
