This book sits at that incredibly rare intersection of deep expertise and excellent storytelling. The author's obvious care for and knowledge of subject of Native American belief, her scathing remarks on the good old boys club of the FBI, and her general badassery made this book impossible to put down from beginning to end. In truth, I've never been so riveted by a non-fiction book -- something the narrator, with her choppy cadence and terrible pronunciations, did her best to distract from. In short, I would highly recommend the book to just about anyone, albeit unfortunately in hard copy.
