Author Vic Glover invites readers to cruise down the back roads of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, one of the poorest in North America, and meet his family, friends and neighbors. Together, with humor and perseverance, they are strengthened as they try to overcome the social and political forces that threaten their community. Native and non-native alike will find a poignant honesty that grabs them from the opening line to the end. For some it will feel like familiar territory; for others, a heart-opening awakening to the struggles and spirit of The People.
