Buffalo Spirits is filled with affection for the Great Plains and the extraordinary people bound to it. Insightful and disturbing, Elizabeth Black's first novel confronts the problems faced by farm families struggling to stay on the land they love. --Senator Bob Dole
Black offers a moving, and justifiably tragic, depiction of the fate of the farmers, land, slaughtered buffalo, and feedlot-incarcerated cattle of the Great Plains. --Kirkus Reviews

I really identified with and liked the main character, Becca, as she journeyed from girlhood, through her college years, and into adulthood. She is smart, real and likable. Much of the book is her life story - woven in with moving stories of the Native American tribe that had lived on the plains years before, and the modern demise of the small family farm and environmental damage to the prairie. The author is very effective at using the stories of individuals to make a larger point.
This book really makes you think. And its a great read.
A prime example is the author stated the Beatles arrived in America at the end of 1959, when in fact they arrived in 1964. That information is not difficult to research.
A very poor job of editing and proofreading.
Too many errors ruins a book.
