The book has potential but the poor editing is the bummer. I will only read this after it is well-edited. Thank you for your detailed review on this.
Good call :)

Thank you for your review. I read a few books about Native Americans and I was hoping to add this one to the list, so I hope the author will invest in editing and proofreading.
As do I. Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

I liked this review. I don't have a stitch of Native American blood in me(that I am aware)but my husband and his family are. Despite the errors, it sounds like an interesting book to read.
Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it!

The errors would be irritating for me, but this book sounds close enough to Sherman alexie's work that I might really like it.

Great review. Such potential in that book! Such a shame it wasn’t edited properly.

I'm definitely getting this one. The Indian Americans have always being a mystery to me and seems this book have serious cultural exposures to fill my curiosity outside the movies and of course love has to come in. Nice job SAB!

Well now I'll have to look into Sherman Alexie! This book just needs a (substantial) makeover, but the material is excellent. Thanks for reading and commenting :)

It's a book I would love to see done-up properly; we'd be in for a treat. Thanks so much for your comments :)

The Indian Americans are a mystery to most, I believe. Certainly for me! I love being presented with information that helps me gain a better understanding of their beliefs, practices, and perceptions. Thanks for reading and commenting :)

This sounds like a great insight into a unique culture. I love learning about different groups and their traditions, and Native American traditions are particularly steeped in lore. A real shame about the errors, but hopefully these can be fixed!

Culture is always fascinating to read about. Learning what generally makes a group of people tick or the basis for their traditions is fun. A pity the editing of this book is substandard.
