Rescue at Pine Ridge, submitted by Leon Brooks

After the Civil War,  USCT's whose service was not up were deployed in the west, and would come to be called Buffalo Soldiers
by Native-Americans. Eric Hicks has wtitten a novel about Buffalo Soldiers and submitted the following posting on his new book, and information about other productions.

Keep telling the story!:
Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, "RaPR", a great story of black military history...the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers.

How do you keep a people down?  'Never' let them 'know' their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

Read the novel, "Rescue at Pine Ridge", 5 stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the you tube trailer commercial...and visit the website

I hope you'll enjoy the novel.  I wrote it from my mini-series movie of the same title, "RaPR" to keep my story alive.  Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn't like telling our stories...its been "his-story" of history all along…until now.  The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see at;

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890's, "spread the word".
