#2: The Ghost Dancers by John Benteen

Sundance is half-Cheyenne, and has fought in both worlds; but settling down on a ranch with his wife doesn't end his troubles in John Benteen's The Ghost Dancers.

Benteen wrote lots of genre novels, in multiple series; I have dipped my toe in his Men's Adventure series Fargo but had never read one his Sundance novels until I came across this one at a flea market for a dollar.  John Benteen was, most of the time, the mainstream author Ben Haas.

This is an action-packed western, with several touchpoints throughout real history--including Little Big Horn and Wounded Knee--which adds value to the proceedings.

Benteen is always a solid storyteller, and I will look for more in the Sundance series.
