Philbert Bono and Buddy Red Bird are about to prove that the spirit of the great warriors is still alive and kicking. Their "war pony," a burned-out, rusty 1964 Buick LeSabre, has left a trail of dust from Montana's Lame Deer Reservation halfway down Interstate 25 as they take off to bail Buddy's sister out of jail. The basis for the great movie of the same name, this quiet debut novel, first published in 1979, has become a classic of American Indian literature.
