    Nice easy and uick book for the general reader I was somewhat disappointed that the book skips nearly all of Pawnee history from the travels of Onate until explorations of LaSalle a period of nearly 300 years that included the major Pawnee military victory over Pedro de Villasur near Columbus Nebraska I guess in the publication of digital compilations one cannot expect everything Still I wish there would have been material included that is known to exist regarding the Pawnee Civil War between the Skidi and Southern Bands the defeat of the Paduaca and the numerous encounters with the French fur traders
