At our January 2016 meeting we will discuss the following book selected by Van Perdue:
The Searchers: The Making of an American Legend by Glenn Frankel
Van provides the following additional information about his selection:
For those who want to do some supplemental reading here are a few books that I found useful, notably The Comanche Empire by Pekka Hamalainen, Chapter 7 of Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, and Alan LeMay’s novel, The Searchers. The Wrath of Cochise by Terry Mort was also useful though it dealt with an Apache tribe in Arizona because the events described took place in the 1860s, when the movie’s story was set.
