Two stories run through this book. The first is about the devastation of Crow culture in the 19th century as whites settled the region that is now southeastern Montana and northern Wyoming; the second concerns not the devastation of Crow culture but the vulnerability of our own culture after the events of 9/11.
Christians can be quite good at feeling guilty. We feel guilty if we commute to work by car, but we also feel guilty if we don’t earn enough money to buy a house in the suburbs with a yard for our kids to play in.
