Excellent read! An inspiring story of one woman who found the way to rise above what exists around her to create something somewhat better. This is not a sunshine & roses happy ending kind of story. But what she accomplishes with the means she has is much to be admired! Mirrors much of what I learned from a young friend among the Sioux people at the beginning of the '70s & saw unfold through those troubling years. A compelling read as well. Sheds clear light on some ugly, unwelcome truths along the way.
