I loved this book, it was like no book I had ever experienced. Suited to those with a deep interest in understanding the trauma which affects many Indigenous people today, and how healing can take form. The first time I tried to read this I was not prepared for its advanced approach to spirituality so could only read it for the storyline, which didn't take me past the first few chapters, but when I decided to pick it up again it was perfect in every way. Truly immersing and challenging; a treasure I will always carry.

Read this book for a class in college and loved it. Terrific lyrical writing. Marmon is one of my fave Native American authors, right up there with Sherman Alexie.

The description of this book sounded fascinating, and there are a number of themes that interested me. That being said, I didn't care about the characters, didn't find the writing compelling, and stopped reading about 25% through. I don't give up on many books.

This story, by an aboriginal writer, is set in the American southwest. It tells of a soldier returning from WW II who is suffering from post-traumatic stress and recovers through aboriginal spirituality. It is an excellent book; a classic.
