In this story the author is telling us about the days he spent in Wounded Knee, South Dakota during the Wounded Knee Incident in 1973. Days full of danger, but also rich in what he learned from the Indian point of view about the White Man's God. He conversed with Jimmy, a Blackfoot Indian, about God and what he believed in. An inspiring and thought-provoking true story. I read it twice in one night to absorb it all once again. This certainly is worth your time and money.
