The Holy Road is the sequel to "Dances with Wolves." It is just as powerfully written, but of course the reality is that the Sioux were eventually forced onto reservations, and those who refused were hunted down and exterminated. That's history, and of course it makes for a very unhappy, if realistic, ending for this book. Nevertheless, if you want to follow the continuing adventures of Smiles a Lot, Wind in His Hair, Ten Bears, and the rest of the band, it's an engaging and fascinating read. Just be prepared for a serious reality check before it's over.
I hope this new version and publisher put that right, because the story is worth reading for many reasons.
Dances With Wolves is about the Comanche tribes, not the Sioux. Film producer Jim Wilson says in the Illustrated Story of the Film, ‘At first I had Oklahoma and Texas in mind (for filming), because the Indians in Michael’s novel were Comanche and they were indigenous to those areas… It was really the buffalo that pointed us toward South Dakota…’ Here, they found the largest private herd of buffalo in the world – 3,500 head. The added benefit of South Dakota was one of the largest Native American communities in the country, the Sioux. The Holy Road continues with the story of the Comanche.
The ending of the film is not the ending of the book; John Dunbar and Stands With A Fist don’t leave the tribe, but stay with them.Read more ›

Great read and follow up on the characters established in Dances With Wolves.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
It was a good follow up the first book. I often wondered what happened to the characters. Even though you know history, and know what to expect, it was heart breaking.Published 21 months ago by Kerri Rose
This is one of the saddest books I have ever read. It is hard to read about a way of life that was destroyed. Well written commentary.Published on December 23, 2013 by Bobbie
This is the continuation to the original book, Dances with Wolves. Too bad, they decided not to turn it into a sequel to Dances, but I recommend reading it after reading Dances.Published on December 15, 2013 by Thomas J. McCabe
