This one will stay with me awhile.
ItsWindy
Many editing errors and a trite story that read like a high school writing assignment worthy of a B- or C+ grade.
Madonna Flanders
The premise of the book is ridiculous.

The Dream Dancer blended the Traditional native culture and the prejudices of the white society in the early 1960s. The main character had to struggle with his insecurities of his heritage and his successes in the white man's society while fighting for the future of his people to protect his people. The story is well written, honest and causes the reader to reflect on what is right and wrong in the American society.

The struggles of Native Americans and broken treaties are central to an understanding oa American history, but this book adds nothing to the reader's understanding of the conflicts between the white man and the N.A.s. The "hero" of this book, Coop, is a crazed murderer. The premise of the book is ridiculous. The writing is mediocre at best. Don't waste space on your Kindle on this one.

A rich odyssey in which a man is drawn from a world away back to his native American roots, full of twists and turns and magic. Inventive and authentic. The story will stay with you.

This story really made me aware of the brutal way my ancestors were treated, I loved the way he told the story, I think everyone should read this book and ask theirselves ...Was this my ancestor that was this cruel? And How can I in this day and age make life better for people worse off then me...There but by the grace of God go I....

not at all what I expected. I found the book in the sci-fi/fantasy section but I don't think it was categorized properly.
It is a dark story about a man's struggle with his American Indian heritage and responsibilities, prejudice and revenge.

Stars are for the truth within the story. If only real life could have an amiable ending...light read, thought provoking

I thought that Kenneth C. Crowe's story was entertaining. My Paternal grandmother was born on the reservation in Oklahoma; her father was a Native American (Indian). I did not know much about that culture as I grew up, in fact, I only recently learned of my ancestry while playing with my family tree on Ancestry.com. This book features a lot of stereotypical Post-WWI & II attitudes and behavior viewed from the perspective of a Full-blood Native American. The contrasts in belief systems (and greed) around the world create the wars, large and small, human beings suffer and die . . . and then what? The ending if this fictional history tells us one possibility ! ! !

My views of this book are hard to sum up. I was inclined to drift off the dedicated path. It may have been a topic I was slow to find an interest. Maybe it was not what I had expected or imagined. What ever it was I was slow to want to pick it up again.
