Publisher's Summary

In The Holy Road, sequel to Dances with Wolves, master storyteller Michael Blake at long last continues the saga. Eleven years have passed sub Lieutenant John Dunbar became Dances with Wolves and married Stands with a Fist, a white-born woman raised as a Comanche from early childhood. With their three children, they live peacefully in the village of Ten Bears. But there is unease in the air, caused by increased reports of violent confrontations with white soldiers, who want to drive the Comanches onto reservations.

Disquiet turns to horror, and then to rage, when a band of white rangers descends on Ten Bear's village, slaughtering half its inhabitants and abducting Stands With A Fist and her infant daughter. The three surviving great warriors - Wind in His Hair, Kicking Bird, and Dances with Wolves - decide they must go to war with the white invaders. At the same time, Dances With Wolves realizes that only he can rescue his wife and child. Told with the same sweep, insight, and majesty that have made Dances with Wolves a worldwide phenomenon, The Holy Road is an epic story of courage and honor.

less than i had hoped

having loved both book and film of Dancea with Wolves, I had such high Hopes for the sequel... but was disappointed after all these years hoping. Not a bad story, just not adequate of the characters I had grown to love. it seemed a pale chapter. I really struggled to get through most of it.

A grim reminder

This follow up to Dances With Wolves was well written and well performed, but this provides no escape from the deplorable foundation upon which this country is built. That story unfortunately tells and condemns itself. This book is unapologetic and unforgiving in its depiction of the plight of Native Americans in US History. You cannot read this book and feel proud of how this country was established.

How did the Souix become Comanche?

Reader George Guidall is excellent as always! And the story is interesting enough. But any true fan of the tribes in Dances With Wolves as Dakota Souix unexplainably becoming Texas Comanches in the sequel is left scratching his head. If you can look past this transformation, the tragic story of the end of Comanche way of life is well told.

follow up to dances with wolves

The book was extremely well written. the the authors illustrations of the people and surroumdings were wonderful. I felt transported to the time of Indians on the great plains. I did not realize this would be a book of how the American Indian was wiped from it's native Country. the story made me feels sad for the Indians and a little ashamed to be a white man. all in all it is a great book and and Interesting follow up to dances with wolves.

Sad

Terrible story told beautifully. Great insight into Native American life. I am sick after finishing this book. I think the natives story is the most hidden act of brutality ever. It’s up there with Nazi Germany.

Scattered in the wind like the great buffalo herds

Dances with Wolves was focused, it's sequel never promises anything and delivers a lot of ambiguity. It is all over the place. Difficult to keep reading to the end.

Its Differant

you would think this was the second book of dances with wolfs the story of the soldier Dunbar but it is off track its is more of an white Indian called Dances With Wolves it is a little hard to get through but you can persist and make it The Dances With Wolves Book is Better Done.

Natural follow up.

Had to see how the story unfolded and it is inevitable and sad. At least there is closure on all the outcomes.
Well read. Some parts just seem to be padding and others could have been expanded but it is good.

Beautifully evocative of a way of life gone.

Very sad and poignant to in a strange way, bare witness to the destruction of a people and a nation.
The story though offers great insight into the life, culture and beliefs of the original American peoples.
I was very taken with the 'mystery' as it's something I would like to feel and grasp.
The sadness though at the end is so deeply effecting.

Enjoyable

Bought it to follow up on the "Dances With Wolves" audiobook. It was nice to find out what happened to the characters of the first book. Such a sad truth to the history of America.
