    1. copied and pasted "KIRKUS REVIEWTay-bodal isn't much to look at; nobody trusts him with weapons; and he's not even a good tracker. At the rate he's going, though, the Kiowa healer will soon be able to hang out his shingle as a detective. Married now to his sweetheart Crying Wind, he's roused from his mental hibernation in the winter encampment of 1867 by the disappearance of his best friend Skywalker, the slaying of two of his wife's relative The Cheyenne Robber's best horses, and the premature [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this book. Somehow the writing style brought me into the story and made it real. So much so that though this book ended up on my back burner list of books I was reading while more quickly reading many others, every time I came back to it I didn't need any catching up. I remembered immediately where I was in the story. At first I thought it was simple, but as the conclusion neared, the story became more and more complex--or rather, its complexities were revealed. The only downsid [...]


    3. This is the second book in the Tay-Bodal series. Set in the Palo Duro Canyon in Texas, where the Kiowa traditionaly made their winter camp, the year is 1866 and the Kiowa bands are at odds with each other after a devastating war with the white men led by Kit Carson. Within the Rattle Band, the practical doctor, Tay-Bodal must solve several mysteries including that of a shapeshifter, a missing friend, several dead animals, an accused witch and a convoluted love story.I enjoy the look into America [...]


    4. I read this book only because my local library suggested it. I had a very hard time reading the story because of the way that it was written. I wanted to finish the book and endured because of the contest at my library. If not for that I would have returned it after the first chapter. Overall the story itself was fine. There were a good number of complex characters but I feel that it was written poorly. I also do not have much interest in Native American culture. I have been to the Palo Duro Can [...]


    5. Set among the Kiowa Native American tribe in the late 19th century, before the days of DNA, fingerprints, and such, a Kiowa "practical doctor" undertakes the investigation of a number of crimes in his tribe, including murder. The story is well crafted and synchronized, presenting clues and plot revelations in a manner that keeps the reader turning pages.
