Oh, what can I say about this book? I am so glad that I finally read this after all these years. Those that only saw the movie are missing out if they think that is all there is to this story. Told from the viewpoint of "Big Chief", this book incites internal riot, satisfaction, melancholy, anger, laughter, disbelief, understanding and finally, peace. I loved it, will never forget it and am so happy that I finally read it.
