No Dogs or Indians
- By: Lisa Hare
- Narrated by: Janelle Tedesco
- Length: 8 hrs and 59 mins
Racism can linger in the strangest of places. Sometimes, even within yourself. For Clara Lacroix, the past was the place she chose to dwell. That's where her memories of Boone, and the life they shared, resided. But for Joe Black Hawk, the past was a painful mix of a fading heritage he didn't want to lose, and a string of mistakes he'd just as soon forget.
Ambitious mixture of themes

Worth a Listen!
Would you consider the audio edition of No Dogs or Indians to be better than the print version?
I did not read the print version. I only listened to the audio book.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the fact that the author looked at the cold harsh fact of racism, sexism, and ageism. That Hare took the time to interview real life people and to review all of her facts before writing her novel. I personally found the factual details very interesting. They were in part why I found this novel to be so intriguing.
Have you listened to any of Janelle Tedesco’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is my first time listening to one of Tedesco's performances. She is a very talented artist. You could tell that she took her time to prepare and flesh out each character. She did a nice job with changing her vocal range for each character.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are some extremely heart breaking moments in this book. If you are looking for something comical and fluffy to listen to this is not it. Although, this novel is heart warming, intense, vulnerable, and sad. When the mustangs are released, I began to cry at the fact that once again the main characters favorite horse has something tragic happen to it. Trying not to give too much away.
Any additional comments?
This novel was the perfect companion on a long road trip. It kept me awake wondering what would happen next. I highly recommend this novel if you are a fan of factual fiction, a lover of horses, and spiritual connections.
