The story of a modern day Native American father struggling with his rodeo cowboy career and a son he hardly knows. The author combines the stories of his magnificent Nez Perce heritage with the struggles of today's northwestern reservations. Beautiful language and a great thought-provoking story.

Set in Oregon's Indian country. A book about fathers and sons, how they pass on wisdom and how they show love.
