** spoiler alert ** Paha Sapa was just a young boy when the battle of the Little Big Horn took place. When he placed his hands on the lifeless body of General Custer, the spirit of the man flowed into the boy. As his life moves on and the times begin to change, he becomes a powderman on the Mount Rushmore project, and the destruction (in his mind) of the sacred places.
This was an interesting book, and it was both a good and disappointing read. I was frustrated with the way that they portrayed General Custer. I felt that some of the characters were not as developed as they could have been, and that there could have more in places, and less in others.
