Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Manfred has woven a wondrously complex story of a young Sioux warrior’s search for the inner core of manhood’s dignity—the ability to live with oneself.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Mr. Manfred’s novel carries the feel of open country, of grass and wind, sun and rain, moonlight and starlight…It is harshly real.” New York Herald Tribune
“Here is Indian lore, humor, customs, daily life, religion, identification with nature—and superb endurance in full detail, color, and understanding. Strenuous—and satisfying.” Kirkus Reviews
