    1. Dorothy's storytelling brings a Lakota family to life as they navigated the decades before and after their lives intersected with Wasichus moving into their territory. She shares well-researched sociological, anthropological, historical, and ecological details in a fascinating read. Her facts match up with those in scholarly work, only they're more engaging because she's added the human factor by telling this achingly sad story through the eyes of a Lakota woman from her childhood to her old age [...]

    2. Set in the 19th century, this novel of American Indian History seemed well researched with much attention to social detail. The main character was Whirlwind who was an Oglala Lakota Sioux.
