    "Things You Should Know"

    The Klamath Indian Tribe, like many other tribes across the North American continent, were bamboozled out of their treaty-granted lands through cynical and twisted policies designed to prey upon the frailties of impoverished peoples. This novel, "Buy the Chief a Cadillac," retells the story of the Indian Termination Act through the eyes of a fictional and righteous character, Pokey Pitsua, a Klamath ("half-breed") whose virtues are vast.

    The novel is both entertaining and tragic at the same time. You will be torn between your guilt at finding humor in human tragedy and discovering that every tragic character is a mirror to your own personal demons. Rick Steber writes about us...now, not about a tragic land grab and rip-off fifty years ago.

    Read this book...it entertains, and enlightens.
