What cannot be denied is that a large number of Native Americans are dying from alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide, and violence. Reservations, socialistic experiments, push people to depend on tribal & federal government rather than themselves and God, and teach children to blame all life's ills on others. 

Roland realized corrupt tribal government, dishonest Federal Indian Policy & the controlling reservation system had more to do with current despair than tragedies 150 yrs ago. 

This is the story of one family, told in hope that some of the dying in Indian Country - physical, emotional & spiritual - might stop. 

Recommended by Dr. William B. Allen, Emeritus Professor, Political Science, MSU and former Chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (1989), who has called the book, “…truly gripping, with a good pace.”
