loved it, recommend this to anyone who is Indian, lives near Indians or works with Indians. this is a very honest description of our history, not what is taught in school.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian audiobook cover art

I loved this book. This is a accurate accounting of what really happens in the life of an Native American "Indian", told in way that makes you laugh and cry. Growing up in a town on what was a former Indian reservation turned public/private owned land I can relate totally to this story. The author hits the mark in every aspect. While his story may seem like fiction to some - those who lived it know just how truthful this is. I recommended this to anyone who wants to know what modern day Native Americans face on a daily basis - Most Indians are not rich from casino dollars, as many non-Indians people seem to think.
