Hauptbeschreibung
<p><strong>A life-changing solo voyage of discovery across the blood-soaked Great Plains. A pilgrimage to momentous sites of Native American heritage.</strong> <strong>Meet the amazing &ldquo;invisible warriors&rdquo; fighting impossible odds to reclaim their heritage and share in the American Dream without losing their unique identity, much as their ancestors fought on the battlefields to save their way of life.&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Nurturing a half-century obsession with Native America and the Old Frontier, this now-retired corporate CEO&nbsp;takes the reader along on his astonishing solo road-trip through haunting places of intense tragedy and stunning triumphs, through Native American spiritual experiences that shook the atheist in him,&nbsp;plunging into the rough and tumble worlds that were Deadwood and Dodge City,&nbsp;chuckling gently over modern American idiosyncrasies. Neither a &ldquo;white historian&rdquo; nor a &ldquo;red commentator,&rdquo; he visits both sides of the Native American experience and, in the most depressed Native Reservations, discovers exciting sparks of a brighter, more hopeful future emerging - a very different take on the usual Reservation stereotypes and stories of misery. This is&nbsp;an unusual and enthralling odyssey effortlessly plaiting space and time, easy to read, without pompous sermonizing.</p>
