"The Indian experience of the last 120 years...Rabbit Boss is of a size and scope that is awesome. Sanchez is a man of tremendous vision." — Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times

"Rabbit Boss deserves to become an American classic. A great novel, spanning a century in the life and death of an Indian tribe, told with epic perspective and infinite compassion."

— National Observer

"Etched in unforgettable prose...Sanchez is to be congratulated."

— Vine Deloria, Jr., author of Custer Died For Your Sins
