Summary
  • Rudy Yellow Lodge is both a resident and a police officer of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Dealing with the fallout and emotional burdens of reservation life in one of the poorest counties in the U.S., as alcoholism and poverty continually threaten the community, his family, and his own state of mind, Rudy finds himself taking the law into his own hands, with potentially tragic consequences
  • "In the shadow of Mt. Rushmore, one of America's favorite tourist attractions, lies one of the poorest counties, The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. For police officer Rudy Yellow Lodge, the painful legacy of Indian existence is brought home every night as he locks up drunk and disorderly Indians, which frequently includes his own brother, Mogie. Rudy's frustration with the alcoholism on the 'rez' leads him to take the law into his own hands, but his trail of vengeance ends tragically when he unwittingly injures Mogie. Ironically, their relationship achieves redemption after Rudy's tragic error in judgment, and the brothers begin the process of mending their fractured relationship. Ultimately, Rudy is able to honor his big brother, as well as his people, with one exhilarating and life-affirming act of defiance, revealing the redemptive power of the love between the two brothers."--Container notes
