Inhaltsangabe: Clem Blue Chest, broken by the loss of his daughter, is uplifted by a vision he receives on a highway one summer night in 1990. Further guided by what is revealed to him in an unusual sun dance, Clem leads his reservation neighbors to regain their most sacred ground, the Black Hills of South Dakota. Confronting missionaries, ranchers, and federal agents, he pushes on into the sacred territory once guaranteed in perpetuity to his people. His quest culminates in a dramatic standoff on Mount Rushmore.
Rezension: Taking an actual historical event--the 1971 occupation of Mount Rushmore by 20 members of the American Indian Movement (AIM)--and moving it to the present day, David London has created a bleak and mystical first novel. The AIM members were protesting the U.S. Government's violations of the 1868 Laramie Treaty, which granted the Black Hills of South Dakota to the Sioux, but their brave, foolhardy protest was quickly suppressed by the federal government. In the novel, the incident has a bloodier denouement. London is a skillful blender of history and invention, and the leaders of the Sioux protesters are extremely well-drawn. He also understands that the AIM leaders are motivated less by the belief that they can right historical wrongs than by a complex mix of personal bitterness, ethnic pride, and long-simmering desires for revenge.
