In a bitter-sweet climax, he learns that fortune favors the brave… Review: “A real page-turner that has everything: man's struggle against his base nature, greed, selfishness, fear, anger, hatred, love, and lust. There is a search for a "homeland" and to find a place where we belong- whether land as in ancestral or land as a piece of this earth that is ours. It gives us "roots" no matter how far away we may be such as on the "mainland" It reads like a noir novel- well researched and well written and filled with the foibles of us humans insisting on doing things our own way. But there is also a quest for something bigger than ourselves here; a search for redemption/salvation however unattainable it may seem to be. There is still a wish, a cry, and a hope to believe that it may be possible.”

The preparation is for death, in case death should be the result of the conflict. Every Indian wants to look his best when he goes to meet the great Spirit.” – Wooden Leg—Cheyenne
