The Medicine Valley Series Two novels so grounded that they will resonate with familiarity for anyone who lives with the beautiful and maddening daily realities of ‘Indian’ life . . . two books that deal with all the issues of tragedy, psychological healing, and cultural and language revitalization that are necessary in the wake of centuries of genocidal efforts to destroy our Nations and Peoples. If all that appeals to you, then you’ll love Tessa’s Dance and Signal Peak. –Steven Newcomb, Indian Country Today
