Buffalo Soldiers — A Historical Novel

by Erich Martin Hicks

If you are attended the first annual Rockland County Buffalo Soldiers award dinner at the Nyack Center earlier this month or you are interested in the story of the Buffalo Soldiers…keep telling that history. 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.

‘€œRescue at Pine Ridge’€ received five stars from Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well as the YouTube trailer commercial.

I hope you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote it from my mini-series movie of the same title, ‘€œRaPR’€ to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been ‘€œhis-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, ‘€œspread the word.’€
