    I found this a very powerful novel dramatising the cultural clash between the Pikuni Blackfeet Native Americans and thepowerful and advanced American settlers called Napikwans by the Blackfeet.I found the detailed description of the vanished life style of the tribe immensely interesting I would tend to agree with the introduction by Thomas Mcguane when he makes the point tha...

    An amazing book that makes you realize just how much sympathetic, realistic, humanizing portraits of Native Americans are lacking in American fiction This book tells the story of Fools Crow, a young Blackfoot warrior, and his village in the late 1800s as US soldiers are encroaching on their territory However, white people loom at the very outer periphery of the story This book is not the usual Requiem for the Noble Savage that you might have re

    The last several weeks I ve spent picking up various books that have been forgotten on my bookshelf for some time now, only to put them down one after another having read only a few pages and becoming distracted My life has felt so out of control lately that it s been hard for me to even concentrate on my beloved stories Until I picked up Fools Crow, that is, and I couldn t put it down.I m a believer in the notion that we usually get what we need when

    A very interesting book for me, and one I am very glad to have read The native indian style of writing in which days are counted in terms of sleeps, months in terms of moons, seasons in terms of the expected arrival of Cold Maker, and so on plunges the reader immediately inside the Lone Eaters camps, and there are so many little details that provide a very vivid picture of what life was like for the Indian Blackfoot Tribes at the end of the 19th century, how

    James Welch was a gifted American writer and one of the best to realistically depict the culture of the modern day Plains Indians After reading one of James Welch s earlier books, I put off reading any other books for years They are hard to read in that they are excellently written but give such a sense of despair Fool s Crow is not quite the same as the othersof a look back at the Blackfeet before the white man entered the scene but towards the end the foreboding and sen

    LOVE THIS BOOK James Welch has left me speechless once again It s hard to say all that I liked about this novel Not only did it show you the lives of the Blackfeet, it sucked you in and made you feel like you were there It s make you feel like your catching all this on camera It was wonderfully written In some twisted way it was like a soap opera, butrealistic I m not sure if that s a compliment or notThe book is mostly about Fools Crow and his tribe It...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here When the novel you re reading concerns a band of Blackfoot Indians just after the U.S Civil War, you know the story isn t going to end well What astonished me about this book, however, is how captivating its story becomes The fact that it s packed with wall to wall action, sex and violence doesn t hurt Nor does its remarkable ability to convey the mystical beliefs of its characters in a manner that is neith

    This is a story about the social and cultural world of the Blackfeet Indians, and the threat to their existence posed by the encroachment of white civilization, as experienced by a young brave whose name, White Man s Dog, later gets changed to Fools Crow The author makes extensive use of magical realism to show us the worldview of the Blackfeet People rely on power animals and good medicine Injuries and illnesses are caused by bad spirits Earthly existence, dreams, the shadowland, the Below T
