I love these stories and think they are great, I have always been interested in Native American myth and legend so I'm glad these were available.
That being said, the narrator uses a very obviously fake 'Native American accent' which was not only difficult to understand but was incredibly offensive. He managed to take stories that are beautiful and cheapen them. I wasn't able to finish this audiobook as I could no longer stomach the narration.
I put off reading this one for some time because I am a 90s child and thought all of the references would go over my head and I wouldn't enjoy it. Quite the contrary! This was a great book and I loved it.
I was excited to read this one because of all the positive reviews it got. However, I found that the author just spent the whole book writing lists of what was going on, rather than trying to engage me in a story. It was all "Will was a good listener. Will was clever", but I was never SHOWN this, just told over and over. The characters were dry and I just didn't find any reason to care about them. I also could not stand the voice used for the Ranger.
Read this book because I am on a waiting list for a service dog and wanted insight into daily life with one. Found this book to be very well narrated and I quite enjoyed it. Definitely gave a good account of the service dog and handler relationship.
