Overview

The Dream Dancer by Kenneth Crowe

THE DREAM DANCER: A Native American hero’s journey in which the monster is a U.S. Congressman and the netherworld is a Pennsylvania prison.
The story opens in Paris in the dwindling days of the summer of 1956. Coop Rever, a Native American expatriate who is the protagonist of THE DREAM DANCER, is getting ready to travel to Algeria to gather material for his third book on the French Foreign Legion. Coop is a war correspondent and author, educated at the Sorbonne under the World War II GI Bill.
Coop dreams that he has been chosen to be a messenger of God. Although skeptical and unwilling at the outset, Coop undertakes the role when the evidence that he is the chosen one becomes so overwhelming he cannot deny it.

THIS IS A REMARKABLE BOOK. The characters are extrremely well written, the plot is uncommon, and the conflicting cultures of the people all interweave to make a truly outstanding piece of literature. I ALMOST DIDN'T READ THIS BOOK. I was bored with the first few paragraphs, and told myself I should be enjoying reading, not enduring it. I made a deal with myself that I would read the first chapter, and if I still wasn't interested I would allow myself to quit this book. I finished the book in less than 24 hours, and have gone back and reread many of the passages in the next 2 days. I FOUND MYSELF ENGROSSED IN THE PEOPLE AND THE DIFFICULTIES THEY FACED. I' ve read other books which tell a story of white versus red races. Other writers also depict the unjust ways the whites meet out " justice." The joy with this writter is how the book explains some of the cultural differences between races, and the strength of one man standing up for his people and their beliefs. I now have 2 more books by this author in my shelves, awaiting the chance to read them. I also expect I'll be rereading this book.

This is a terrific book. It starts a little slow, but that is necessary "business" that needs to happen to set up the rest of the story. This many-layered story will keep you up at night wondering about humanity.

The story does start out slow and I was afraid this book wouldn't be as good as others I have read by this author. By the second chapter I was hooked and literally stayed up all night reading cause I just could not put it down. Vivid characters. Great storyline from a unique perspective. Well written. I am looking for other books by this author.
