  • Impressive!

    cultural-exploration, history-and-culture, reservation, thugs, drugs-issues, suspense, violence, Lakota, crime-fiction, criminal-injustice-system***** Life on the rez is hard. Harder than other small town life, but the encroaching drug problems are there, too. Even though my people come from Europe, I can still be outraged by the way The People have been and still are betrayed by the governments of North America as highlighted in this novel. The tough guy/protagonist is a wonder and he tells some very uncomfortable truths about the treatment of non-whites by law enforcement, especially the Feds. But you should have known that already from reading in the media about the crimes against Native women, especially but not only the Cree. The book is written tightly and with an intensity that kept me reading with as few interruptions as possible despite my discomfort with some graphic parts. There are many good things, too, like descriptions of the moral codes and rituals of the Lakota. Excellent! I requested and received a free ebook copy from HarperCollins Publishers/Ecco via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • Great Debut

    FIVE-STARS. Winter Counts is a first novel from David Heska Wanbli Weiden and it’s an excellent read. A gritty, fast paced book that certainly deserves the nominations it has received in the book world. The book takes place primarily in various reservations and is an eye=opener with regards to culture and crime. I hope this is not the first book in this potential series. Nevertheless, I will certainly keep my eyes open for his second effort. Virgil Wounded Horse is the local enforcer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. When justice is denied by the American legal system or the tribal council, Virgil is hired to deliver his own punishment, the kind that’s hard to forget. But when heroin makes its way into the reservation and finds Virgil’s own nephew, his vigilantism suddenly becomes personal. He enlists the help of his ex-girlfriend and sets out to learn where the drugs are coming from, and how to make them stop

  • a window into reservation reality

    I don't read much. This is the first book i have finished in years. The story and writing is ok but the topics covered and raised motivated me to do further research about reservations and the hardships faced by thee communities. I would recommend this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Excellent Thriller & Reservation Tal

    A modern story of life on the Rez. The hero is an enforcer who is raising his nephew. His wonderful girlfriend works for the tribal council, especially in the food boxed for families. Suddenly heroin starts to show up and then things get wild. The story is terrific, beats any cop show. The characters are so well done that they are real to us.

    Thanks for your feedback!
