it was amazing
Read in January, 1976

One of the best books I have read about Native Americans. It is well written and holds your interest while taking you on a long journey through Sioux history with great characters. The author spent a lot of time with Sioux elders learning their oral history (and the Sioux language!) she then wrote the book in Sioux before translating it into English. This book was like seeing Dances with Wolves at the theater. They both evoked life on the prairie but the movie much more superficially.
