If you like scalpings, take a read on:
Lakota Noon: The Indian Narrative of Custer's Defeat, by Gregory F. Michno.
This is a book of first-hand Indian accounts of the battle known as Custer's Last Stand. Several Indians tell of taking scalps, of "counting coup," and other war stories. One 14-year-old warrior recounted scalping a soldier who was wounded but still alive. He had to saw the scalp off, which he did as quickly as he could while the soldier gritted his teeth in appreciation, then took the scalp home to show his mother.
