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 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 enjoyable read of older works of science fiction The protagonist Kade Whitehawk a Trader for the Space Service finds himself being reassigned to a Team on the planet Klor in disgrace Once on Klor he is slowly being drawn into a battle to help the indigenous population free themselves from the alien Styors who have enslaved mercilessly enslaved them Again Whitehawk goes against Space Service policy and sets a plan in motion to help the Ikkinni get free from the hated Styor s star empire The plot is well just a bit juvenile after all it was written with that reader in mind but is sufficient to keep the reader engaged Since Whitehawk is of Sioux warrior descent he succeeds in getting horses delivered to the planet and helps to get the natives to trust in using them to begin the their liberation After the battle begins he is abandoned on Klor in the not so gentle grasp of those he was trying to help The Space Service sent a rescue ship to his summons and what is revealed to him after the ship lands astounds him With the Space Service there is the Policy think Prime Directive of Star Trek and the Plan He is one of the few whom the Space Service consider a black sheep who serve in a rebellious state they call the warrior breed He is then given the opportunity to remain and continue assisting in the Ikkinni s freedom struggles or go After all he is told a push here a push there topples a star empire
