Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Vella Munn (Blackfeet Season) recounts the travails of warriors Grey Bear and Lone Hawk in Cheyenne Summer. Drought plagues the land and food is scarce; the Cheyenne must compete with the rival Pawnee for food. Wildfires sweep across the land, adding to the danger and drama. Various romantic intrigues and power struggles play out against this backdrop especially the tense rivalry between Grey Bear and Lone Hawk over what is best for the tribe. This will interest only those who know the genre and are willing to tolerate dialogue along the lines of "Look into my eyes and see the eyes of your death."
