    I have spent so long trying to figure out how on earth to review this book that it has begun to haunt me, so I shall simply stick my entire mess of thoughts on this book in, and try to sort them thematically.One This book is pretty much what you d expect if you ve ever read a book by Andre Norton The characterization is what could be charitably called slight , the main engine of the book is plot, which is tremendously linear and uncomplicated itself.Two This book is ca

    Since The Sioux Warrior was primarily written for the young adult market in 1960 it would not have caught my eye back then since I was interested in comics at 12 years of age Today, 57 years later it caught my eye on that 50 cent sale rack After all, what s 50 cents really worth now days I found that it was well written, with excellent main character development and well worth my investment of time for an enjoyable read of older works of science fiction The protagonist, Kade

    This is my second book from the highly prolific Andre Norton, the first being Daybreak 2250 AD From this book it is apparent why she was such a prolific author, since the book feels very much like a thing churned out to reach a deadline The book is set in a future where a space traveling human race shares the galaxy with the evil humanoid Styor, an empire with which they have an uneasy peace Our hero is the rebellious Kade Whitehawk, a Native American space force guy who is in trou

    I picked this up because of the outrageous title and cover I read a lot of Andre Norton s SF when I was 10 13 years old, and while this was a lot like them, this wasn t actually one that I had read before Young Kade Whitehawk is re assigned to a new trade service position among a crew of 4, on the world Klor where the evil intersteller Styor have enslaved the native Ikkinni Kade, being Lakota Sioux, decides to help the Ikkinni fight for freedom, by bringing them plains horses from Earth Pl

    It wasn t bad I liked the animals and the allegory But there wasn t enough characterization, like someone else said, no romance, and no explanation of what happened on Kade s previous assignment that got him into so much trouble But it was a really good premise.

    I m pretty sure this is the edition I have Like at least one other book, this has the bibliographic afterword by Lin Carter Norton often got off the hook as a racist because she was not an orthodox racist conventional categories are pretty much ignored, or rewritten Nevertheless, she was a racist, because she held to the belief that people are what they are because of who they chose for their grandparents This is another such story The hero is a Lakota, and he s not presented at all the way Sioux are co

    Okay, this cover is RIDICULOUS Who could resist It s kinda hard to connect with, in that the aliens are sort of jerks, including the ones the reader is supposed to empathize with but it is actual sci fi, and the kernel of the story is good It s the kind of thing Cherryh does very very well, the stranger theme, the lone human in a world and culture he doesn t understand.but seriously, totally worth it for the cover.

    If you like Andre Norton, you ll like this story Norton s themes revolve around young people finding their way in the world, although her worlds incorporate hefty doses of science and fantasy This story is typically well written and a fun read.
