The encouragement and love of the pastor and his wife help Crying Wind to accept herself and appreciate her own worth.
--from the back cover
An inspirational biographical novel.
This is one of my all time favorite books. Cry is a wonderful, generous lady. At one time this book stirred a bit of contraversy whether it was fiction or non-fiction. It is an excellent book and worthy of your attention in either case. Cry has written several other books that tell the continuing story of her life. All worthy. She lives in Hawaii and is very involved in indian affairs and is an artist.
