Read full description of the books Lakota Winds:I don't think I have ever given a book just 2 stars before. That's because my research is usually a guarantee I will like the book. Not necessarily this time. This was my first purely American Indian romance. Maybe I just had a hard time relating to the culture. But I found the conversation stilted and unemotional. The storyline was OK. I definitely felt sorry for them knowing that their lifestyle was doomed. I've never struggled so to finish a book and this one seemed to go on forever.
Chumani and Wind Dancer are our primary characters. They are fated and foretold to be together. This story is about the quest to protect their respective tribes from enemies. They do this by going on a visionquest which was foreseen by their shamen. The story ends with a big meeting in Laramie of all the tribes with the Whites and entering into a treaty which will allow whites to travel freely through Indian lands.
I did like the fact that Chumani and her best friend, Zitkala, were strong and fierce warriors. There would have been no story at all without that.
This has really put me behind in my reading goals. I don't know if I can bring myself to read the other 3 in this series. Someday, maybe.
