Checkout, War Dances by Sherman Alexie. A very important writer in American Literature today. I personally find the familiarity, connection and the flowing narrative style in his writings at the level I only normally find with Hemingway. In my view, short stories are the most important contemporary art form, although they stand the risk of irrelevance as time moves on, some would be relevant for any time and Sherman Alexie’s is one.
On this vein, check out Pow Wow Highway, at some point in the picture, you tend to see the battered old Chevy as a War Pony as the main character imagines.
Native American History, Life and Stories touch the soul.
