Overview

Eleven years have passed since Lieutenant John Dunbar became the Comanche warrior Dances With Wolves and married Stands With A Fist, a white-born woman raised as a Comanche from early childhood.
With their three children, they live peacefully in the village of Ten Bears. But there is unease in the air, caused by increased reports of violent confrontations with white soldiers, who want to drive the Comanche onto reservations.
Disquiet turns to horror, and then to rage, when a band of white rangers descends on Ten Bear's village, slaughtering half its inhabitants and abducting Stands With A Fist and her infant daughter. The three surviving great warriors - Wind In His Hair, Kicking Bird, and Dances With Wolves - decide they must go to war with the white invaders. At the same time, Dances With Wolves realizes that only he can rescue his wife and child.
Told with the same sweep, insight, and majesty that have made Dances With Wolves a worldwide phenomenon, The Holy Road is an epic story of courage and honor.

    Outstanding continuation of Dances with Wolves!

    Michael Blake has truly picked up where he left off, when he continues Dances with Wolves!! Didn't we all want to know what happened to Kicking Bird, Ten Bears, Smiles a Lot, Wind in His Hear, Stands with a Fist, and of course, Dances with Wolves? And now we can find out by reading The Holy Road, the sequal to Dances with Wolves. As always, Michael Blake uses the English language beautifully when he describes how the white man came, and in the most cruel, condescending and ignorant way, took the land away from the original people of Northamerica. The events in the book touch you deeply, not only because of the writer's talent, but also because we all know it really took place, not too long ago. Also, Michael Blake has done a unique job, when he several times during the book describes how some of the main characters react, when they for the first time are confronted with inventions brought to their land by the white man. This is a book which has touched me deeply, and will stay with me for a long time

    Highly recommend - check it out.

    If you loved Dances with Wolves, you will love this sequel. It is the continuing story of Dances with Wolves, his family and the tribe. It begins 10 years later and tells what has become of the tribe. It is a very good read.

    all telling

    Although Dances with Wolves seemed a to play a small role, the author succeeds in relaying the pain, suffering, and utter shock endured by the native americans. This book answered all the questions about the Ten Bears tribe. A little depressing but couldn't put it down!

    Very different feel to it than in "Dances with Wolves"

    Very different feel to it than in "Dances with Wolves". This is a very depressing story that just wants to make you cry. I can't believe that almost all were killed off. Very little of the story had to do with Dances with Wolves and his family. Mostly it was about Kicking Bird and his. Still, a great read.

    A glimpse into history

    A good book, but not great, and nowhere near as good as the original. Tells the story of what inevitably happened to the American Indian but strangely does not deal with Dances With Wolves (John Dunbar) much at all. Felt the book ran out of steam at the end and he rushed the ending just to finish it. Doubt there will be a third book.
