Told through the voices of a single family, here is the unforgettable story of a century of Lakota Sioux life--an epic journey of cultural identity found, lost, and found again. Compiled from family interviews and historical documents, this fascinating account offers a unique perspective on Native American culture and American history.
"Highly readable and highly recommended."—Glenn M. Busset, The Manhattan Mercury
— Glenn M. Busset
"A fine story of cultural survival and a history that should find a place alongside those of a Crazy Horse or a Sitting Bull-integral parts of the American experience."
"This is a living, heartbreaking account of four generations of a Lakota Sioux family. . . . A truly fine book rich in historical and personal detail of a family and a people."
"No superfluous sentimentality impedes this saga; it moves across the pages with an immediacy that belies its century-plus timespan. . . . The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge is a story of raw endurance and of a passion for the honorable freedom of mind, heart, and body."
"Highly readable and highly recommended."
—Glenn M. Busset, The Manhattan Mercury
"You get to know four generations of Dull Knifes as intimately as the characters of a good novel. . . . [Starita] has written a compassionate book, but an angry book."
