Louis Kraft: Sand Creek & the Tragic End of a Lifeway …

11 Jun

Many of you know of our dear friend and brother, writer Louis Kraft. He is busy at work on a book about Errol & Olivia of the same title and has now finished his epic work Sand Creek & the Tragic End of a Lifeway which is a beautifully produced and rendered book about the American Indian massacre at Sand Creek over 150 years ago, and its impact on a centuries old way of life …

We promote the works of people here who are related to our interest in Errol Flynn and at times, also let you know about their other works, too. Louis Kraft is a dedicated Flynn historian and authority on Flynn and Olivia de Havilland whose friendship with Louis goes back over twenty years. This is a major work, and it deserves your attention:

I am reading it now, and as everything Louis writes, you start with the first sentence and are drawn all the way through whatever he writes with no regard to time or the ways of the world until the end … You can read more about his book at his blog LouisKraftWriter.com… in this posting about his book

From Amazon:

“Nothing can change the terrible facts of the Sand Creek Massacre. The human toll of this horrific event and the ensuing loss of a way of life have never been fully recounted until now. In Sand Creek and the Tragic End of a Lifeway, Louis Kraft tells this story, drawing on the words and actions of those who participated in the events at this critical time.

The history that culminated in the end of a lifeway begins with the arrival of Algonquin-speaking peoples in North America, proceeds through the emergence of the Cheyennes and Arapahos on the Central Plains, and ends with the incursion of white people seeking land and gold. Beginning in the earliest days of the Southern Cheyennes, Kraft brings the voices of the past to bear on the events leading to the brutal murder of people and its disastrous aftermath. Through their testimony and their deeds as reported by contemporaries, major and supporting players give us a broad and nuanced view of the discovery of gold on Cheyenne and Arapaho land in the 1850s, followed by the land theft condoned by the U.S. government. The peace treaties and perfidy, the unfolding massacre and the investigations that followed, the devastating end of the Indians’ already-circumscribed freedom—all are revealed through the eyes of government officials, newspapers, and the military; Cheyennes and Arapahos who sought peace with or who fought Anglo-Americans; whites and Indians who intermarried and their offspring; and whites who dared to question what they considered heinous actions.

As instructive as it is harrowing, the history recounted here lives on in the telling, along with a way of life destroyed in all but cultural memory. To that memory this book gives eloquent, resonating voice.”

This is a substantial work with Notes to each Chapter, a bibliography, and Index. 430 pages. Published by University of Oklahoma: Norman. OuPress.com….  It is available on their website here: Sand Creek & The Tragic End of a Lifeway, by Louis Kraft. Also available at Barnes & Noble and Target bookstores.

You can get a print book or a Kindle version on Amazon. It is such a beautifully produced book, a real treat to hold and look at well worth your time taking a look at!

Well done, Louis …

Dodging Dodge City? — OR Dreading Bette D?

22 Mar

March 20, 1939

Louella O. Parsons
Los Angeles Examiner

If Errol Flynn fails to show up for his preview, Bob Taplinger is going to lose some money. Errol’s trusting P.A. is betting that he will be there, but knowing the Flynn temperament I wouldn’t want to do any wagering myself. Errol doesn’t have to be back in Hollywood until May, when he plays Essex to Bette Davis’ Elizabeth.
Another change in the schedule has put The Knight and the LadyThe Miracle. You’ll see Claude Rains as Bacon, poet laureate of the Elizabethan era. It will all be in Technicolor. Bette’s first. This Queen Elizabeth is based on Robert Sherwood’s “Elizabeth the Queen”.

Help Rory Flynn Bring Sean Flynn & the Missing Back Home!

10 Nov

Rory Flynn, Mike Luehring and Dave MacMillan have created a GoFundeMe to help bring Sean Flynn, Dana Stone and the other missing journalists home … many efforts over the decades have been undertaken and now it is felt that the answers are close to hand. It will take a financial commitment beyond what has already been made, as well as the emotional cost already spent to bring Sean, and other still missing home again. This is our chance to help make it happen, those who have respect and love for all of them. It is a chance to share in the effort, and the accomplishment of what has been a very long struggle …

You can donate any amount you like, however small, it will become a river ..

Please visit the funding page to see a special video Rory has made to help us understand what is at stake …
