Customer Reviews

Good stories, but they all seem to run together after a while.

They are an interesting look into writing and specifically how this author gets her ideas, writes, researches.

I have been a fan of this author for many years. This collection of short stories is a change of pace from what I have previously read by Ms. Coel. Many take place on the Wind River Reservation with the familiar characters of Vicky and Father John. But there are other locales in some of the stories, too. There are also 2 essays at the end of the book. Those alone were worth the price of the book. They are an interesting look into writing and specifically how this author gets her ideas, writes, researches. I loved the personal touch of these essays. I loved the nod to the author of An Unfinished Life, too, one of my favorites, in book and film. I'm not usually much of a short story reader, but each and every one in this book kept me interested and wanting more. All in all, I loved this book. Hated to see it end. Bravo, Ms. Coel.

I like Margaret Coel's Wind River mysteries--read all the books--so was excited to see this new offering. I am a fan of short stories so this fit the bill. A few times I felt the stories were rushed to a pat ending, but then, that may be due to the fact I am used to novel-length mysteries. It's Coel in her element with Fr. John and Vicky fuguring it all out in the end! I enjoyed the stories while waiting for her next full-length Wind River tale!

I have read all of the Wind River mysteries. Every single one. And as such, I've become quite familiar with Ms. Coel's style, her rhythm, her pacing, the way she uses the language. Reading some of these stories left me wondering who the author of them actually is. Some just didn't feel like Margaret Coel. Frankly, some were written very amateurishly. Maybe by Ms. Coel when she was a sophomore in college. Having just finished "Killing Custer", the stylistic differences were notable.

I own and have read all her novels and really appreciate the short story format of this book. I always have time to read a couple of the short stories and enjoy not having to wait to see who did it and why!

I liked some of the short stories in this collections because of the Native-American lore. Other stories were not as engaging..they were more of the author's musings.

Good stories, but they all seem to run together after a while. How many times has the St. Francis Mission Museum been broken into? There seems to be no end of crime on the Arapahoe Reservation; where is the balance that all tribes say they are looking for?

Margaret Coel presented us with some short stories where she tried out some interesting ideas. A ghost town. Life on the Rez. Unfortunately, the stories on reservation life all melded into one indistinguishable lump. All had to to with angry young men making poor decisions, and the deterioration of life and society when alcoholism is rife. It may very well be too often true, but surely not everyone is a drunk, or a girl/ woman/ or child(ren) willing to stay and be beaten up by a drunk. These are proud people on their land, they know who they are (white society all to frequently had/ has problems because they DON'T have such an identity). The young men who join the military are once again warriors, and have that status among their families and community. I have seen their photos on display in restaurants and other locally owned establishments, and the pride visible, although guarded when talking to a tourist, on their family members' faces. There is far more variety than shown in these stories. Still, it was good to have a visit with the familiar 'family' of characters from her Windriver novels.
