Reviews

"Walt continues to be excellent company because he's always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series...This time a wizened old medicine woman takes Walt in hand, guiding him through a Native American Church peyote ceremony deep in the woods...he [has] a vision that expands his mind and helps him solve the case."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review "A top-notch tale of complex emotions and misguided treachery... Crow is a superb novel steeped in the culture of the American West."--USA Today "The pleasure of the series rests in Walt's narration, with its laid-back, observant, bemused recounting of events...Solid landscapes, a melange of fully fleshed characters (familiar and new), drily laconic dialogue and assorted power struggles--including Walt's endless war with Rezdawg, Henry's recalcitrant, falling-apart truck--keep the latest in this rich and satisfying series on engaging course."--Houston Chronicle "Walt's voice lets readers in on his gentle and wry nature, while showcasing his devotion to bringing bad guys or gals to justice...Johnson enriches his narrative by using the setting itself as another well-developed character. Johnson's Northern Cheyenne characters defy stereotype with self-depreciating humor and strength. Chief Lolo Long and Tribal Chief Lonnie Little Bird are especially well-crafted and appealing."--The Denver Post "Johnson expertly highlights his conflicted hero's dual role as father and sheriff in this deeply satisfying installment."--Publisher's Weekly (starred review) "All the elements his fans love are present: lively characters, easy banter, and, of course, a touch of the supernatural. In early books, Walt was less sure of himself, but, in his eighth adventure, it makes sense that he's now the one "giving sheriff lessons." This book fits the hand like a well-worn glove."--Booklist Walt continues to be excellent company because he s always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series This time a wizened old medicine woman takes Walt in hand, guiding him through a Native American Church peyote ceremony deep in the woods he [has] a vision that expands his mind and helps him solve the case.
