"We have many books about the individual pursuit of success and significance. We have fewer that explore the practical and spiritual realities of belonging. Of these, we have none better than Fools Crow."

"In the Montana Wollaston describes, newcomers are welcomed and scrutinized for talents that might enhance life. People sacrifice to organize a school, buying windows, digging wells, and hiring teachers. They form a community club to discuss their problems and share their solutions. When they go to town, they leave their houses unlocked, so traveling strangers can stop and fix themselves a meal."

Easy to read and well worth your time. You get experiences and opinons about the war from fifteen different soldiers who were involved. The authors did a nice job assembling this collection and capturing the soldiers' voices.
