The Sioux Spaceman

Kade Whitehawk had two strikes against him in the Space Service First he had bungled his assignment on the planet Lodi Second he believed all creatures had a right to freedom and dignity and ha I have spent so long trying to figure out how on earth to review this book that it has begun to haunt me so I shall simply stick my entire mess of thoughts on this book in and try to sort them thematicallyOne This book is pretty much what you d expect if you ve ever read a book by Andre Norton The characterization is what could be charitably called slight the main engine of the book is plot which is tremendously linear and uncomplicated itselfTwo This book is called Sioux Spaceman I bought this book because I was with my mother at the time it was 050 and every time I said Sioux Spaceman she twitched You sort of have to croon the name The cover exhorts you to Beware the Horsemen of the Stars and appears to be about Hawkman s radio controlled harem boys Everything about how it is marketed is ridiculous although obviously it was aimed at the reading audience of some fifty years agoThree However what really caused me to bog down in my attempt to review is this book as a cultural artifact Inside the book the protagonist Kade is never referred to as Sioux he s Lakota Also contrary to what the cover would have you believe there are no white people in this book although there are a half dozen humans There are also no women or even female aliens There are female horses however Kade s goal is to undermine Alien Species A s attempt to colonize Alien Species B Via horses So really you don t need to beware the horsemen of the stars I am aware of a certain species of book by white authors in which they send their white protagonist back in time to prevent some historical atrocity committed by white people or some variation on that theme but Kade doesn t seem designed to assuage liberal guiltThree and a half HOWEVER there are some um infelicities Kade is often doing things with the fill in the blank of his ancestors sometimes of his savage ancestors One of Kade s superiors is described as Afro arabian and his name is Abu I don t speak Arabic but I m pretty sure that means Father which seems like a funny nameOkay now this book can stop haunting me

    Since “The Sioux Warrior” was primarily written for the young adult market in 1960 it would not have caught my eye back then since I was interested in comics at 12 years of age Today 57 years later it caught my eye on that 50 cent sale rack After all what’s 50 cents really worth now days I found that it was well written with excellent main character development and well worth my investment of time for an enjoyab
