I am not a major country fan but I grew up with it through my folks. I like all types of music and knew well of Johnny Cash. I couldn''t fully appreciate Mr. Cash until I listened to this cd....the story telling is crushing and heartfelt. I absolutely love this cd. So truthful and poignant. I highly recommend it. Especially if you are not afraid of truth''. Buy this cd, you won''t regret it. Mr. Cash was a true pioneer who courageously spoke out for the underdog.

While riding one day my mother , after listening to one of the songs on the radio said she wished she could get a CD of her own, ''too bad they don''t make them any more''. I thought, "Well, I can check Amazon and see if they have it. You never know." Sure enough, found it in time for her recent birthday. She was so pleased. She listens to it every time she and my step-dad go somewhere.
The songs are well written and have meaning. I may by one for myself, later.

These are songs told from the perspective of American Indians. Other then the Ballad of Ira Hayes I was not previously familiar with any of these songs.

Custer is told from the American Indian view point and questions how the battle would have been viewed if the outcome was reversed (a slaughter or a victory). The song does not hold back it''s contempt for General Custer

White Girl is the story of an Indian man who is used as a "toy" by a white woman who never intended the relationship to be serious.

As Long as the Grass Shall Grow is haunting and beautiful

I would reccomend this to any Johnny Cash or country story teller fans

Johnny Cash was always more than just a Country Music singer and he proved it with this recording.This was simply one of the bravest albums ever recorded. It was recorded fifty years ago when this country was engaged in the the fight for civil rights for all. The start of this album began in 1962 when Johnny heard an obscure folk singer, Peter La Farge at the Gaslight. Peter was a Native American who sang about his histoy - our histoy. At the time people cared less about the plight of Native Americans then they do now. But that night, Johnny was touched by what he heard and the seeds for this project were sown. Johnny went ahead and recorded an album of his songs and Peter La Farge''s. Unlike many albums recorded back then, this one stands the test of time. But back then, Johnny got no support from his record label and the radio stations refused to play it. The album has remained a unheard gem.

was familiar with the ballad of Ira Hayes, it was a pretty well played song back in the day. Wish I''d heard some of the others. and I wish he had kept some of these in his regular rotation of music. Its kind of like he jumped on a popular movement, did his thing, and moved on. and this is an area that keeps needing the spotlight shone on it over and over again. the music is orchestrated with a chorus, pretty flashy, but part of the times in which it was recorded. and its Johnny Cash -

Real True about American Indians destiny :(
Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2019
Very Nice & Brave songs/stories from Johnny Cash about true destiny of Native Americans. No wonder why they were declined/prohibited for publishing on LP/CD many years before this edition (most of songs), only The Ballad of Ira Hayes was in some editions before.

There are only eight tunes on this CD, Dedicated to the American Indian and the way they got shafted by our government. This CD will become one of your favorites. The songs were recorded over 40 years ago and include the Carter Family for harmony. You will love it as my listeners do. The booklet has no referances to, who assisted Johnny, but I know it was the Carter Family, I don''t know if the Statler Brothers were included It is short, with about 30 minutes of Johnny Cash''s great voice in protest to the treatment of our Native Americans. He didn''t pull any punches on "CUSTER" who should not have been an officer, let alone, a General. It is well worth the price to include in your collection.

I bought this CD because I first listened to the CD which was a tribute to it which I rather enjoyed. Then I read a review which said it was not as good as the original Johny Cash CD. I looked the Cash CD up and at the time it was too much cash if you''ll pardon the pun. Later I saw it at a more reasonable price and bought it. Although Johny Cash is one of my favourite singers I have to say I am disappointed. Many of the lyrics are spoken rather than sung which I find annoying. But what is worse is some of the forced rhymes.OMG. They remind me of a writers group I used to belong to where you would always get an amateur poet proudly presenting their work, thinking that every line had to rhyme and doing verbal backflips to produce some god awful rhymes. This is what some of the Johny Cash lyrics are like. Yeah, I get the point, the white man cruelly ripped off the indigenous people of North America but the awful poetry/lyrics detracts from this.

I have been a fan of Johnny Cash for years - but have only recently heard about this album and had to have it for my collection. Not sure what I was expecting but, come on, this is Johnny Cash ! What a breathtaking brilliant album ! For anyone out there who, like me, thought that the americans had stopped playing chess with the Indian Nations - listen to "As long as the grass shall grow" ! That song is so haunting, I had to research the facts behind the lyrics. The building of the Kinzua dam across the Allengheny river flooded the farms, homes and burial grounds of the Seneca people - who had been granted this land by George Washington. This didn''t happen in ''old west'' - this happened in 1965, in spite of the fact that the Seneca found an equally good alternative site for the dam, and in spite of the fact that one JFK promised the Seneca he would oppose the building of the dam. Seems the white man still speaks with forked tongue !

Important, "lost" JC album

Sounds like JC but the tone of the songs is not what you expect from Cash. Heartfelt, moving music about the vicious injustices suffered by "American Indians" at the hands of all American heroes.

A very beautiful and soulful interpretation of Peter La Farge''s songs of Native Americans including the well known Ballad of Ira Hayes. Recommended to anyone who is a Johnny Cash fan or that has an interest in the history of Native Americans. Not the usual racy numbers usually associated with Cash, but tuneful nonetheless and very moving.
