A complex story, with, as usual, Vicky's case and Fr. John's converging. I feel like I really know these people and the place where they live. I've read some non-fiction books about Civil War impersonators. This book goes into some of the reasons people do war reenactment. I've never been able to make sense of the motivation before. Now I feel like I do, and it can be dangerous! I do think that, as with most series, understanding what's going on requires reading them in order, at least several at the beginning. When you have a sense of who the people and the setting are, missing one wouldn't matter so much. But I'm glad I've read them in order. I have a sense of how Vicky and Fr. John have grown and changed over the years, and of what the Arapahos are like as a people, and their history.

I tried on 3 separate nights to get into this book - couldn't do it. I expected to love it since I am usually interested in any culture that is not my own but I just didn't feel it - maybe it was my failing, but I couldn't like any of the characters, I had a hard time keeping them straight...I don't think I'll be checking out any other Wind River Mysteries.

I love this series. If you haven't read any yet, start at the beginning, the oldest title, and read them in order. There are complex characters, intriguing stories, and a beautiful landscape. Well worth reading. I did pretty much figure out the whodunnit part, but not the details of it all.
