I was introduced to this book by my college english teacher. I could not put it down. Descriptions of the War Partys and the everyday life of the Blackfoot Indian are interesting as well as action packed. I enjoyed liked the Spiritual parts as well.I feel a better understanding to the indian culture after reading this. My husband is reading it now, he does not read much so this book has captured my construction worker husbands attention, He loves it!

a very insightful look and the lives of the blackfeet: the potent influence of both the spirit and the natural world intermingled with tradition, honor, and sacrifice. welch invokes an element of sadness upon his readers as he recounts the presence of the white men and women on the respected soil of the blackfeet indians. a very honest novel- the closest i have ever felt to undertanding this side to the history of the America's.

I hated it. Maybe I'd appreciate it if I knew more about the Blackfeet but the book jumped around, left many things unexplained, and didnt seem to have much of a deeper meaning. The ending was really abrupt too.
