Overview

Here is an unprecedented look into the lives of contemporary American Indians. In this bold and engaging anthology of real-life stories, author Vic Glover reveals the challenges, history, bonds, and rich traditions that infuse the stark reality of life on the "rez."

Glover invites you to cruise down the back roads of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, one of the poorest regions in North America, where you're introduced to his family, friends, and neighbors. In the midst of daily hardships and a rigorous spiritual path, you'll find a culture of unending sacrifice, tolerance, and generosity. With humor and perseverance they struggle against the social and political forces that shadow their community.

This book will touch your heart. For some it will feel like familiar territory; for others an awakening to the struggles and spirit of the people of Indian Country in the 21st century.
