I’m still reading Black Hills. It’s good & interesting, just not a page-turner.

Black Hills by Dan Simmons

Black Hills by Dan Simmons

Different tribes and different languages, according to Curly, although the tribe that speaks what Paha Saps hears as “the In Glass language” seem to be in control, the way Sitting Bull and the Lakota were over the Cheyenne at the Greasy Grass. But there are also Fat Takers here in blue coats who come from tribes names (and who speak and think in) Ire Itch, Jure Man, Dutch, Pole Acky, Sweee’D, Eye Talyun, and even a tribe called Niggers.

  1. That is a fascinating teaser. It took me a while.

    Here is my teaser on Rose City Reader.

      It is a really interesting book. It isn't one I can read huge amounts of at one time though, it is very dense and needs your attention.

    Sounds like it could be interesting in a historical way but not in a mad furious suspense kind of way. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book.
