Summary

Toussaint, Montana isn't easily rattled, but an earthquake uncovers an ancient burial ground and the well-preserved bones of a primitive people. When an archeologist is found with a bullet in his back and a dinosaur tooth in his pocket, sometime sleuth Gabriel Du Pre steps in with the wisdom and vision of his Metis ancestors to uncover the answers. But while Indian archeologists and entrepreneurs battle for valuable land and the precious remains of a dinosaur, a predator more dangerous than the great T. Rex walks the Montana plains, hungry to strike again.

Critic reviews

"Strange, seductive...haunting....The wonder of these voices is that they are...blunt and crude, soaked in whiskey and raspy from laughter, but still capable of leaving echoes." (New York Times Book Review).
"Gloriously unbridled... [Du Pre] resonates with originality and energy." (Chicago Tribune).
"Wonderful...a wise tale that wears its idealism as casually as a pair of old jeans." (Washington Post).

Native American shenanigans

Interesting journey alongside a motley crew of hard drinking and smoking “Indian” characters. A fair amount of magical realism/spiritual revelation which made me intrigued and wanting to know more of the back story of Crow/Sioux religious belief. The reader has a good shot at creating a range of characters with distinct accents and speech patterns. Worth exploring.

Drab book

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I could not get into this, I actually gave up with it, it seemed pointless in a lot of the story parts, the rambling stupid story took 10 chapters to get going then never really developed into anything.... I tried with it, but have given up... it gets good reviews and sounds intriguing, don't be fooled into this as it is a drab as they get!
Sorry Peter Bowen fans, this one is a failure!
