Captivating Nov 3, 2004
I am not usually one to read historical fictions, but I happened into the village book store in the Pacific Palisades a few days ago and found the author Kuri discussing the book. I thought I'd stick around and listen, and as it turned out I was not let down.
With incredible passion this man discussed his years of research into the Cheyenne's rich history. He spoke of his 7-day ride horseback along a trail in Yellowstone once walked by the great Cheyenne Chief Morning Star, living off the land as the Indians of the past did. The authenticity of Kuri's research and the vigor with which he talked about the Cheyenne's plight convinced me to buy the book (and I got it signed too!)
I began to read the book a few days later, and what unfolded before me was remarkable. The way Kuri weaves together the story of Chief Morning Star and more contemporarily Ted Rising Sun and their struggle to bring the Cheyenne into the future kept me glued to the page. I have to admit I read the entire book in a 2 hour sitting.
For anyone truly interested in the history of a great and proud people, told in the page turning way only Kuri could, Cheyenne Rising Sun is the book for you.
