Summary

Sparkling with magical realism, this book follows nine seemingly separate stories that dovetail in an unexpected and profound climax. It begins with a mysterious pow-wow to be held inside a colossal tipi, 3.5 miles tall and three miles wide, which suddenly appears on the outskirts of a small town. Advertising fliers blanket the area and all of Indian country, billing itself as "The Pow-Wow of all Pow-Wows." There is a stipulation to the pow-wow though: only full-blooded Native Americans are allowed to dance, drum, or attend the grand event. 

Mixed-blooded Native Americans and non-Native Americans protest the gathering. Meanwhile, nine travelers make their journeys to the huge get-together, including a blind teenager lovingly transporting the dead body of his grandmother, who was the last medicine woman, to the pow-wow she wanted to attend before her death. None of the nine travelers realize that they are part of something more important, something much bigger than what they all seek from being at the pow-wow. And at the story's end, an epic battle between good and evil ensues that will change the world forever.

Excellent story

Finally a story that has a happy ending for American Indians and the journey to that happy ending is crazy like the trickster

Meh. Had to stop listening

Book is poorly written. The story is okay, but I couldn’t make it past three hours. The strip club was too much for me; had it not been included in the story, I may have listened further.

All indigenous culture are intertwined

Very good narration and the chapters flew by like no tomorrow. Some chapters stopped suddenly, if I remember correctly, but slowly the big pic comes together like a grandma/ Ahka sewing her atikluk or mukluks. I enjoyed it immensely.

complete and utter bullshit.

I was willing to go along with the fanciful and farcical ideas the author was purporting until he mentioned Star Wars and then I just shut it off and didn't listen to a word more. Not all authors should be allowed to read their own books unless no one else will read them because the material is so ignorant. If you're going to be a storyteller then tell me a story, captivate me. don't drive me nearly insane with a speech pattern that's halting at best and a voice that's grading at its best. If I had bought this book other than for a $5 sale I'd be asking for my money back.

Wonderfully creative but so real!

This book is so imaginative, funny, witty, educational and moving. In an entertaining way, it really demonstrates the centuries-old plight and spirit of Native Americans, which continue to this day.
