    A comical story of two Cheyenne tribesmann

    'The Powwow Highway' 'The Powwow Highway' by David Seals, is a story of two Cheyenne tribesman, Philbert Bono and Buddy Red Bird, who set out on an excellent journey. Their challenge is to find and free Buddy's sister, Bonnie Red Bird, who is in a New Mexico jail. The story tells of their adventures and provides background details on each character. Seals also tells the story of Sky and Jane, Bonnie's kids, and their escapades for freedom from imprisonment at a foster home. The wicked web of spun tales, police chases and just plain fun, all meets at the end for a spectacular finish. If readers are looking for a book full of laughter, fights, and adventurous moments that will make them want to never put it down, then 'The Powwow Highway' is the book. <P> One way in which David Seals succeeded was to incorporate humorous moments into every part of the storyline. The author depicted a sense of a real adventure un-folding right before your eyes. Seals leads you on, but doesn't give you enough information about the up coming events to give you an idea of what's about to happen. Seals takes you down the same path of the Cheyenne hell-raisers and finds a way to relate their experiences through the pages, straight to the reader.
