Read this because it's required reading for our school's academic team this year. Not a book I'd normally pick up. But I did find certain aspects interesting. The Native American Kiowa culture was interesting. The respect the tribe showed nature and their enemies juxtapositioned with the lack of respect the European invaders showed is rather disconcerting. The book didn't really focus on this but it was evident nonetheless. Makes me once again question this "God bless America" thing. If a God sanctions what we did to these people, I think I'm going to have to say "Thanks, but no thanks" to a God like this. But fortunately that's not the God I believe in.

Sorry I got off track. :) I'm giving this book three stars.
