Book Review: Dances with Wolves

Book Title: Dances with Wolves

Quote: "The late afternoon breeze was up, but the only thing that moved was the shred of canvas."

That's at Fort Sedgewick, when Lieutenant Dunbar is sent out to hold the abandoned fort, where he bonds with the wolf Two Socks, the horse Cisco, the horse thief Kicking Bird, and the lost White woman Stands With A Fist...you know the story. Kevin Costner's movie version was pretty faithful to the book.

What else is there to say? I found a copy of the book at a benefit sale, read it to see how close the movie version was to the book, am now ready to pass it on. If you click here to buy it from me for $5 plus $5 shipping, Blake (or his favorite charity) gets $1. If you click on the ISBN number above to buy it from Amazon, you might get a lower price, but Blake gets nothing. If you go to the Mountain Treasures store on West Jackson Street in Gate City, you get a lower price, and the nice older ladies at the store make a donation to a legitimate local charity. Which helps Native American women, I might add, along with other people.
