    Just started:

    The killing of Crazy Horse

    by Thomas Powers.

    The beginning is very interesting reading as it is readable like a story told and yet incorporates traceable sources of all kinds available given in endnotes.

    OK, endnotes requires to leaf through the book but footnotes wouldn't be a better choice. You can choose between footnotes and endnotes and both have there merits and misgivings. Yet they are useful and helpfull in the way the book is written. Else the charakter of a story told would be destroyed.

    May be read first without rcourse the endnotes and a second read with consulting the endnotes.

    Rosebud June 17, 1876
    Prelude to the Little Big Horn
    by Paul L. Hedren.

    Somehow it reads very much one sided or as seen by the soldiers on General Crroks side.

    I had hoped for a view as seen by either side and very much more including oral history of the Cheyenne, Lakota and Araphaos to point out there view fo the fight on the large battlefield of the Rosebud.

    That are historical sources too. Different than a written report of the officers and the newspaper articles but nevertheless, real sources which exists and have to be taken into account.

    Sigh.

    I found my old pocketbook of the US Constitution. I carried this copy in a small plastic bag in Afghanistan and Iraq. I started to read it again. I have read this a lot.

    I really love to read. Recently, I often read e-books. I bought almost the entire series of books about Xanthus (this is fantasy by Anthony Pierce, here is a description). At first, these books seemed childish to me, but then I realized that adult questions were raised there. The author brilliantly described the quantum theory in one of his books. I like how easily and simply the author describes such social problems as racism, censorship, conflicts in relationships.
