When it is snowy and cold outside, superspeed readers like me can read 150 - 200+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today. LOL

I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do .

DNF at around 50%.

I was curious about this book due to the story of a girl named Tamara, whose case fascinated the author, Senator Dorgan. I wanted to learn more about her case, and the injustices faced by Native Americans. However, I found that the flow of this book was quite odd, and there was not much of a coherent story line for me to follow. Senator Dorgan goes from topic to topic quite easily, with paragraphs switching subjects with little forewarning or transition. Each chapter is also

Matter of fact writing style of a subject we are finally putting a face to. The neglect and abuse we have done to the Native Americans. The First Americans. This book, written by a senator, will open your eyes to how the first Americans are living. I took my time reading this book because I wanted to digest every fact I read.

This book is for all Americans. It's for all of us who came over from another country. Remember: this country was inhabited before we arrived. It had been inhabited for

The book is about a young Indian girl in a picture. What happened to her was wholesale neglect on the behalf of Indian Affairs and the United States government. This book was more about the plight of the Indians in the poorest broken down slab of land the USA government could find to stick them. You think of the poorest neighborhoods in the USA, who at the very least have some sense of programs to help them: food stamps, work, retraining for work, housing, etc. The Indians have none of that, ...more
