Read in October, 2009

Was a difficult read in the beginning but turned out to be a really good Montana book. Great history of Indian Schools and their effect on Indian youth. Also provided great insights on the relationship between missionaries and Indians in the 30's and 40's. If you like Montana history, check this one out. But be prepared to be patient as the story develops in the first 100 pages.
