Native Americans win the battle for the post-Civil War American West in a fascinating alternate history fantasy from "one of the genre's best writers" (The Washington Post). Nebula and Locus Award-winning author Pamela Sargent "loads her Springfield and heads into the post-Civil War era with a rousing tale of what might have happened had the Indians united against white encroachment. If Harry Turtledove has been driving the Alternate America stage, Pamela is now riding shotgun" (Jack McDevitt).   In a different nineteenth-century version of America, after the end of the White Man's Civil War, the victorious North sets its sights on westward expansion. But their army is greatly depleted after years of bloody conflict. And their Native American adversaries are ready . . . and waiting.   As the visionary Lakota chief, Touch-the-Clouds, cements the necessary alliances with once rival tribes, two separate worlds brace for the inevitable confrontation to come. Lemuel Rowland, a US government official and full-blood Seneca Indian, has lived among the white man for most of his life. Now the approaching storm threatens to destroy everything he believes in. Torn between the culture he's embraced and his true heritage, Lemuel has been entrusted with a grave responsibility and knows he must prove his loyalty. But to which side?   Populated by a large and colorful cast of unforgettable characters--including Sitting Bull, Chief Crazy Horse, Calamity Jane, and other real-life personages--Climb the Wind is a "most enjoyable and entertaining new alternate history adventure which . . . brings a new dimension to the form" (Gahan Wilson).  … (mere)

Such a drag to get through. I'm sure it might be interesting to history fans, as you see how the attitudes of different famous people (e.g. Gen. Crooke & Custer, Teddy Roosevelt) play out in an alternate future. For me, it was very irritating to see how Lakota women were portrayed. There was an assumption that women shouldn't fight, tho we have historical examples of Lakota women who did. There was an assumption that women did whatever their husband told them to do. Graceful Swan was so compliant, even when she finally got the gumption to stand up for her desires she still deferred to the man.
Sargent was an author on my long-standing list of women to watch for, because of early books I've enjoyed. No longer. ( )

An alternate history where the Sioux win the Indian Wars. It gets off to a slow start and has lots of viewpoint characters to keep track of, but I thought the portrayal of the Native Americans was very good and the alternate history interesting. ( )
