First of all let me say that I like this book, is not what I was expecting but I like it.

It's an historical and this was not so clear reading the blurb. It's setting more or less at the end of the nineteen century, when Native Americans where pushed in reserves to let space to the settlers. Lee is a cowboy without a place: he likes men and he made the huge mistake to be discovered with another man; he lost his work and he was lucky to not lose his life. He wanders till he finds a nice place to s
Had a really thorough review written for this but as I went to hit save my laptop decided to lose its wireless signal. Awesome. So it's late & I'm just going to skip the synopsis because there are plenty of them on here for you to read. So let's just stick with how this book made me feel. Really frustrated.

The story line was fine. Nothing wrong with that. Well. Okay. Except maybe the beginning with how they met while Lee Masters was covered in his own body fluids and Tatanka seemed to be ju
A very interesting story where the sum of the book is better than the individual parts. Taking apart each element shows the inherent problems within the story; however, together the book is actually better than I’d thought.

Tatanka and Lee are of 2 worlds. They are only complete when they share one world. A beautiful love story between Dakota Indian and cowboy. Much Dakota language and customs are deftly employed. Some reviewers say their expression of love was too fast. I believe in love at first sight and perhaps in their time in history one needed to make decisions fast. Sleeps With Dog, thier adopted son, also provides them with learning more about each other and how important family is. I do agree with other r ...more
At first I didn't like the book too much. As I read the book I started liking it more and more. It was a confuseing book at times. I would read it again and I would tell others to read it also.
I liked the historical references and the linear plot line, but there just wasn’t anything compelling about the story. I didn't feel connected.

Since retiring, Terry spends his time writing, working with animal rescue groups, walking his three dogs, pumping iron while listening to Harry Potter audio books and riding/showing his champion Quarter Horse.

His interest in Native American culture stems from the fact that in tracing his heritage, he found his great grandfather was an Illini.
