Great western saga. Tragedy and brutality. The slaughtering of innocent native American women and children. The harsh life in Nebraska. A dysfunctional family. This book has it all.
Well-done Western saga that follows the tragedies of a family living in the Sand Dune Hills of Nebraska in the years after the massacre at Wounded Knee.
The story gripped me in the first-third and then again in the last several chapters, but the middle dragged a bit, which is why I'm not giving it a higher rating. I did generally enjoy the voice Jonis Agee gives her characters and would try another book from her.
Good western saga. Not a quick or easy read, but a deep read with strong characters - both likeable and unlikeable. The book cover describes it best - a mystery, a tragedy, a romance, an exploration of the beauty and brutality, tenderness and cruelty of the American West. I liked it.
