a good book

I said I would try to pass some good books and movies along, so here is a really great book.
The name of it is "On The Rez", by Ian Frazier, and it is about life on the Pine Ridge rez. It is really eye opening, and at times can be a little depressing, but sometimes uplifting too. The best part is the many people who manage to maintain their courage, humor, and compassion in truly terrible situations. In the end, the Lakota are shown to be the great people they truly are.
I highly recommend this book to everyone.
