This was a really good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. While it was billed as a story of Quannah Parker of the Comanche, it took in quite a bit of history of all the Plains Indians. Very detailed sotries if living conditions for these native Americans and the changes they experienced at the hands of the white man. I wouldl endorse it for anyone who wishes to study the culture of the Plains Indians. Quannah's story occupied maybe the last quarter of the book. It was easily supported by other resources I have read about Quannah. A fascinating story!
This is a very confusing book. I did not enjoy it. A rather long and boring tale of marital and domestic troubles and tribulations in the upper Midwest of the early 1900's. Never did make the connection with "A Reliable Wife"; in fact she was really quite unreliable. Depressing in it's mood and outcome.
A good book. Very interesting plot line. Combination of technical, physiological, and entertainment issues. Learned quite a lot about ultra runners.
A great story. Very interesting character development; plot development was well conceived. Some parts made you feel you were there. Recommended for history buffs.
