This is a great book for the sports-minded individual, especially for the male population. The title is based on an old Indian legend about braves returning to the village and finding the whole village dead from a plague. The braves, not wanting to live, tied a clothe over their ponies eyes to blind them and then rode them over a cliff. The story is set in the winter in Montana in a very small high school. The basketball team has lost over 90 games, and yet they continue to play. Two new players join the team, a 7' Norwegian exchange student and a determined basketball player from Minnesota. The majority of the story follows the basketball season and the frustrations of the team from Willow Creek. The quirky town people show the despair, regret, and longings found in any small town. Each person's story unfolds as the basketball season commences.
