Ride the Wind by Lucia St. Clair Robson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is another reread, and I love it. I'm not usually into Indian stories, but this book is different. The lurid cover is offsetting, but don't let that deter you from reading this book. The writing is pretty good, and the story is incredible. I learned so much about the Comanche way of life and seriously sympathized with the People as their entire world was destroyed. I loved reading about how Naduah becomes one of the People, and my heart broke as their entire life and civilization fell apart. I fell in love with Wanderer and felt involved in the Comanche ways. The end is tragically sad, but it was compelling in its sorrow. The last twenty pages or so dragged a bit, but apart from that I loved it. It's a beautiful story narrating and documenting the end of a people.
