Killing Crazy Horse: The Merciless Indian Wars in America (Bill O'Reilly's Killing Series) (CD-Audio)
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. Its 1811 and President James Madison has ordered the destruction of Shawnee warrior chief Tecumsehs 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.
In Killing Crazy Horse bestselling authors Bill OReilly and Martin Dugard venture through the fraught history of our countrys founding on already occupied lands, from General Andrew Jacksons brutal battles with the Creek Nation to President James Monroes epic sea to shining sea policy, to President Martin Van Burens cruel enforcement of a treaty that forced the Cherokee Nation out of their homelands along what would be called the Trail of Tears. OReilly 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.
