Editorial Reviews

Review

"Coyote Warrior will open your eyes and heart to the ongoing battle to preserve Native nations, history and cultures."—Debra Krol, Native Peoples
(Debra Krol Native Peoples )

“[VanDevelder] holds a mirror up to postcolonial America itself, showing how we are entwined and indebted to those who have lived here for thousands of years.”—Audubon (Editor’s Choice)
(Audubon )

“Gripping—think A Civil Action set on the rez—and it'll have you cheering for the warrior in the three-piece suit.”—Outside
(Outside )

“The astonishing account of one American Indian’s battle against the federal government to save the land his ancestor’s lost.”—Esquire
(Esquire )

“Highly recommended.”—Kirkus Reviews
(Kirkus )

“Our famously immigrant nation has remained largely oblivious to this former life of the North American continent. . . . The reader of Coyote Warrior may see a current running deeper than the treaties [in this book] themselves. The Indian’s history has not only inextricably intertwined them with the natural life of the continent, but it also poses a continuing challenge to what a Bureau of Indian Affairs chairman once described as the American assumption ‘that the value system of the Anglo-Saxon is universal, and that the individual ownership of property is the only natural way for people to live.’”—San Francisco Chronicle
(San Francisco Chronicle )

Format: Paperback
I'm very happy the way this book was writen about the Cross family. It was true to the writing, down to the last detail. I was sad to hear and read the way our goverment treated these people as well as other native americans. I was surprised what Pres. Nixon did for them in the end. I'm happy to say that I know one of the members of the Cross family, and heard about this before the book was written.

I was entranced for days, reading this book. Very often I couldn't see the print on the page as tears would flow and I'd have to stop and recover some composure. I'm astounded that I never knew this story since I was born and raised in Minot, ND. I'm thrilled to learn of the spirit of these Indian people and heartbroken over the total and deliberate shattering of the world they loved and flourished in. I'm proud of Old Dog's descendants, these young, smart lawyers, and the women who brought them up. I feel the happenings recorded here are part of my own history that I didn't know.
