    I really liked the main character Paha Sapa, but each story line

    I really liked the main character Paha Sapa, but each story line was never completely developed where I wanted to get emotionally involved. It jumped around so much, but I never felt like any story line came to a full and satisfying conclusion, although it was well written. But the end was what really disappointed me. Really? It seemed liked the Dallas ending all over again. I died, everything that happened after that was a dream, oh! Excuse me I really didn't die. At the end Dan Simmons seem to get on his soap box about global warming, cattle overgrazing, over population and religion. And really! Genetically engineered biospheres to reintroduce extinct ancient mammals with Native American Indians as a tourist attraction! Is that really the ultimate goal in our evolution? What a disappointing ending, I couldn't wait until I was finished. I was holding out hope until the end, but once I read the ending I definitely knew that I would not recommend this book to anyone that I knew.
