Seeking to round out the compelling story of the American West, bestselling Lakota author Joseph M. Marshall III brings a new slant to the traditional Western: historical fiction written from the Native American viewpoint.

This riveting novel takes place during the Battle of the Hundred in the Hand, otherwise known as the Fetterman Massacre of 1866. The story is told alternately through the eyes of Cloud, a dedicated Lakota warrior who fights alongside a young Crazy Horse, and Max Hornsby, a white pioneer who mistakes Cloud’s redheaded wife for a captive.

Beautifully written and reminiscent of the oral tradition, Hundred in the Hand brings new depth and dimension to the story of the battle and the Lakota people.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] completely realized world. Readers who love to hear a harness creak or the whistle of an arrow or love to see snow snake across a drifted valley floor will revel in Marshall’s West…Marshall has tapped into an old form and infused it with a slightly different brand of knowledge to produce a swift, compelling read. Simply put, if you like Westerns, you’ll love this one.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Compelling…Marshall reads the passages told from the Lakota viewpoint himself. His slow, gentle voice lingers over story details and the thoughts of the Lakota as they watch white settlers take over their land. John Terry reads the passages about the settlers. His voice is more energetic and expressive, but his words won’t stick in listeners’ minds as long. The two voices combine to show the story’s shifts in perspective well. There’s action, but the battles are secondary to the characters and their emotions.”

    " Just finished Hundred in the Hand by Joseph Marshall. It was an underwhelming glimpse into the life of the Sioux as Americans migrated to west. Kind of disappointing. "

    " "There were no survivors." So reads a monument at the site of the Fetterman Massacre. My favorite line said to Cloud during his wife's pregnancy, "women are strong or they could not be mothers and grandmothers." "
