This is my new favorite book!!
Part of the American Indian Literature and Critical Studies Series, A Pipe For February is an exceptionally well written and finely detailed narrative about the changes and struggles experienced by the Osage people in 1920's Pawhuska and surrounding areas. Charles Red Corn has such a poignant eloquence is his sharing that it is impossible to read him without being picked up and carried directly into the story. He has managed to beautifully balance history and accuracy with fictional elements providing us a seamless landscape as a backdrop to a vivid and very real story. This book is a definite must read! (and re-read) There is plenty to discover with each subsequent reading.

This story has everything, good guys, bad guys, money, murder, love, loss, betrayal, culture, tradition, and everything in between!
