Escape the the Wind River Reservation

"The Eagle Catcher" is one in a series of Wind River Reservation mysteries by Margaret Coel. They are reminiscent of the great Tony Hillerman books, with a real respect for and feel of the reservation. Coel's characters are also compelling - you long to follow their story. There's a priest who comes to love this far-flung outpost to which he has been banished, and the Indian lawyer who is conflicted by her roots and her attachment to the priest. Other characters are well-drawn, and the joys and sorrows of life on the reservation make for excellent reading. And listening - the narrator does a fine job.

Unfortunately, Audible doesn't have all the books in this series. Do try one of these; I think you'll like them. "The Eagle Catcher" is a great place to begin the series. Maybe then a whole lot of us appreciative listeners can convince Audible to offer them all!
