“[Faith] was something other than an intellectual exercise. There were no words, no lofty concepts, that could take away the pain. Faith was living with the pain.”
Margaret Coel, The Eagle Catcher

“[The past] has a way of hanging around, demanding we understand it and weave it into ourselves so that we can go on.”
Margaret Coel, The Eagle Catcher
tags: past

“Arapahos had followed the buffalo, pitched villages in the lee of the mountains, ridden out like itinerant shop-keepers to trade buffalo robes and blankets with other Indian tribes. Intelligent, logical, peaceful, that was the Arapahos. “The businessmen of the plains,” the first white traders had called them.”
Margaret Coel, The Eagle Catcher

Lizz Hi Margaret,

It was great to meet you for the Poisoned Pen Luncheon. What a fun time! I just wanted to let you know that I also picked up your first and second books in the Wind River Reservation series from Amazon. The best surprise was that both books came already autographed by you... The Ghost Walker was signed in 1996! What a hoot! I can't wait to start the series. Take care!

Best Regards,
Elizabeth
